Face to Face: Graphic novelist speaks about tackling heavy subjects in a way that appeals to youth

Face to Face
Growing up in Winnipeg, David Alexander Robertson never learned about his Indigenous culture and heritage in school.

But he’s trying to make sure that is not the case for the next generation.

The award winning graphic novelist has close to 20 titles under his belt.

All can be used as teaching tools in the classroom. We speak with Robertson about tackling heavy subjects such as residential schools, MMIW and suicide in a medium that appeals to youth.
