Graham Angus is an aspiring writer, artist and artisan, currently working behind the scenes at Theytus Books, Ltd. in Penticton, BC. A self-described “Misplaced Mohawk-Métis”, Graham was born in Ottawa, Ontario, raised in the confluence of territories in Calgary, Alberta and is privileged to live in the beautiful and inspiring heart of unceded syilx Territory.
Stemming from 16 generations of mixed marriage along the shores of the St. Laurence and Great Lakes, Graham swims in both ends of his gene pool and strives to honour the Métis, Kanienkehaka, Wendat, Ojibwa, Algonquin, Miq’ma, French, Scot, Welsh and Irish ancestors who’ve enabled his existence.
A graduate of the En’owkin Centre International School of Creative Writing in the late ’90s, Graham’s published creative non-fiction works have appeared in various anthologies over the years. While his own stand-alone book remains elusive, Graham is honoured to help bring the vision of Indigenous authors and artists to life and to uphold the Hul’q’umi’num’ meaning of Theytus, “preserving for the sake of handing down“.
