We are so excited to present this brand new book study! Designed to fit into your existing small groups or book clubs the book is divided into a four-part book club based on Thomas King’s book The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America.
Your sessions will be guided by four videos. Each session’s video will feature a guest speaker touching on some of the key themes of the book, settler-Indigenous relations in North America, and our shared Christian faith. Each session includes discussion questions to prompt further thought and meaningful dialogue.
- Copy of Thomas King’s The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America (available in print, ebook, and audio formats)
- If your group cannot afford to buy the book please contact us at [email protected] as some copies may be available for loan.
- While the videos will guide your sessions participants may want a copy of our print guide. You can download the digital version below or order a print copy via Faith Alive. Questions? Feel free to email us anytime at [email protected]

- Watch a video: Starting from session 1, watch the session video separately or together as a group.
- Come together and discuss thoughts and questions from the readings, video, topics, or issues raised. Pause the video as discussion questions come up, or whenever a break to discuss seems necessary. We encourage you to discuss your own questions.
