about

Basil Johnston was one of the foremost Anishinaabe writers and storytellers, and his comedic stories about life in Residential School, Indian School Days, is a classic. Candies was Johnston's first collection of humorous works in decades.Excerpt from "Indian on Bicycle" found in Candies:Both cars raced off. Tires squealed. Rubber burned. 50 ... 60 ... 70 ... 80 miles an hour.Behind, the old Indian, his hair flying, his shirt flapping and snapping like a wind-blown flag, was desperately ringing his bell, "ding, ding, ding." ..."Better get ready to flag down a couple of fool kids racing down the road about 80 miles an hour. But you won't believe this ... there's an old Indian on a bicycle trying to pass them!"
Basil Johnston is cherished as an esteemed Anishinaabe writer, storyteller, language teacher and scholar. He was born in Wasauking First Nation in 1929, and was a member of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. Johnston was awarded the Order of Ontario, three honourary doctorates, and the 2013 OAC Aboriginal Arts Award.
