Hannenorak Publishing (Éditions Hannenorak) was established in 2010 by Jean Sioui, poet, and Daniel Sioui, owner of the Hannenorak Bookstore, in Wendake (QC). The two came to this decision after many discussions with Indigenous authors from different Nations regarding the need to create and foster more publishing opportunities for Indigenous writers and their works.
Les Éditions Hannenorak ont été fondées en 2010 par l’auteur Jean Sioui et le propriétaire de la Librairie Hannenorak, Daniel Sioui, à Wendake (QC). Ce sont des contacts répétés avec de nombreux auteurs autochtones issus de différentes nations qui ont mené les deux fondateurs à identifier un besoin, un manque de ressources, quant à l’édition des Premières Nations. http://hannenorak.com/
