hello! i'm JASON EAGLESPEAKER

AWARD WINNING INDIGENOUS AUTHOR and PUBLISHER


 

MY STORY

My story begins as a young boy on the Kainai rez. My late grandfather, Glen EagleSpeaker, was a renowned Blackfoot ARTIST, STORYTELLER and CRAFTSMAN.

I traveled the world with him, while he taught me the immeasurable value of storytelling -- as a tool to EDUCATE, INSPIRE and EMPOWER others. In an era long before social media, my grandpa reached people all over the globe.

Sadly, he passed away when I was merely 10 years old. His memory fuels my work and how I live my life!

As you'll see from our exclusive selection of authentically Indigenous GRAPHIC NOVELS, MEMOIRS, NOVELS, LANGUAGE BOOKS, KID'S BOOKS, COLORING BOOKS and more, I have since taken his grassroots guidance to a whole new level.

UNeducation

ONLY $25. Our flagship resource -- "UNeducation: A Residential School Graphic Novel" -- the names says it all, the true story of a family's exploitation in the residential school system.

FYI -- the UNeducation series began as a hand curated, coil ring bound notebook that we put together as a one-off educational tool. In collaboration with nearly 120 residential school survivors (and their families), we compiled every story, every quote, every bit of feedback into a simple notebook. Demand soon grew to point where simply lending this notebook out wasn't gonna work. So we did an initial run of just 100 copies -- still hand curated, still coil ring bound and now designed to resemble the original notebook. Gone withing minutes, we then realized a professional printer was best.

UNeducation has now reached over 100,000 copies distributed worldwide (and growing). Schools, universites, libraries, correctional institutions, addiction facilities, reconciliation initiatives, youth programs -- it's used everywhere!
