In the Innu language, amun means “gathering”.

Edited by Innu journalist and writer Michel Jean, this blazingly contemporary collection brings together Indigenous authors of different nations, generations and outlooks. Their varied works of fiction reflect not only the history and traditions, but also the harsh reality of First Nations in Quebec and across Canada.

Featuring an array of renowned wordsmiths, this book is a forum for a rare gathering of voices and viewpoints.

  • These novellas are remarkable in their inspiration, engagement and authenticity, bearing witness to the invaluable support the authors’ voices have brought to Francophone Quebec literature. - L’Actualité
  • They all write with a drop of their own blood; their stories ring of personal drama and a memory sullied by centuries of oppression. - Le Devoir
  • "Amun" speaks up and speaks out both politically and poetically. Filled with beauty and sadness, there’s an aching pain running right through this moving collection edited by Michel Jean that’s hard to ignore. - La Bible urbaine
