Avenue of Champions is a collection of interlinked stories that investigates the inherent connection of Indigenous peoples to the land and the permanence of culture, language and ceremony as a form of resistance to displacement. Based on Papaschase and M├ętis oral histories and lived experience, these stories set in Edmonton examine the relationship of Indigenous youth with urban constructs and colonial spaces--from violence and racism to language revitalization and triumph.
