Calvin Helin's new book

Lax Kw’alaams’ Calvin Helin garnered international praise for his first two books, Dances With Dependency and The Economic Dependency Trap, and on September 25 he released his third book entitled The Empowerment Mindset.

Helin’s latest work has already been selected to be a featured book at Barnes and Noble and is receiving some high praise.

“What the book is really about is how anybody, once they have the knowledge of how they got to where they are, can purposely move forward and become whatever they want,” Helin told delegates at the Gathering of Our Nations conference.

“If a little kid from Lax Kw’alaams can become a world renown writer, a lawyer, a bad fisherman and a horrible basketball player, then anyone can become anything,” he joked.

The book carries on the theme of self reliance that were found in the first two acclaimed books. In explaining his reasoning for writing the books, Helin played a video interview of a woman named Violet Abigosis who was living on the streets of Vancouver’s east side who had lost her husband to pneumonia and battling with addictions crack and marijuana.

“This is my Aboriginal reason for writing these books. We have to do something different,” he said.

“It is time to start taking the real power as the real Aboriginal nations.”

More information on the book, including a video preview and sample chapters, can be found online at www.calvinhelin.com/books
