Books by KC Adams

First appearing on billboards, in storefronts, in bus shelters, and projected onto Winnipeg’s downtown buildings, KC Adams’s Perception photo series is now available in book form. Her stunning photographs confront common stereotypes about First Nation, Inuit and Métis people to illustrate a more contemporary, truthful story.


This collection of contemporary poetry, art, and narrative supports K–12 teachers in connecting with Indigenous voices and perspectives, bringing Indigenous works in their classrooms, and creating equitable teaching practices.
