An Indigenous Canadian Author

Robert G. Longpré in Paris 2015

Roots. It’s all about roots. A writer draws upon him/herself and the world around her/himself. Perhaps, more importantly, a writer draws unconsciously from within, the personal unconscious that is tied to a deeper and vaster collective unconscious. My roots are deep within Canada. My heritage comes from French, English, Irish, Spanish, and First Nations peoples. These roots are the wells which I draw from in order to craft my stories, both fiction and non-fiction. It can’t be any other way.

As one of the influences in my life, James Hollis put it:

“Whatever reality may be, it will to some extent be shaped by the lens through which we see it”.

The lenses through which I see and understand my world are that of family, Jungian psychology, French-Canadian culture, Indigenous culture, Buddhism, Christianity, naturism, and extensive travel around the world. As well, I also see the world through the lens of my camera.

I have been a member of the Canadian Authors Association since 2017. And I have been a member of the Saskatchewan Writer’s Guild since 2016.
