Are there any changes we should make?
Note that the Kelvin History website is a newly innovated addition to our school's many historical memorabilias. With the hundreds of biographies already added by a group of dedicated students we are not always opportuned to receive information that would better benefit our alumni biographies. If by chance you feel as though you have some missing details on any particular alumni then we will graciously accept to hear about them from you personally!Suggest a Change

Date of Birth: 1978
David Robertson is more than a graphic novelist; he is a historian, an activist and a teacher. Through his work, the stories of Canada's First Nations people are being told with stark and stunning honesty. His first published work, "The Life of Helen Betty Osborne," told the story of the young Cree woman murdered in The Pas, Manitoba in 1971. The novel received excellent reviews and was installed in classrooms across the province to aid with the teaching of First Nations history. He has since published five graphic novels, all of which combat racism, stereotyping and prejudices as they examine both current political issues and crucial events in Aboriginal history in a visual format that engages young readers. "My hope is that if a youth reads this, they will want to go on and learn more", Robertson said.
