Hauka DonDon Hauka

Don Hauka is a versatile writer from New Westminster, B.C., who has written for print, broadcast and stage. His first novel, Mr. Jinnah: Securities, was adapted for television and broadcast on CBC in 2003. A second TV movie, "Jinnah on Crime: Pizza 911", aired in 2002 and was nominated for a Gemini award.Hauka’s second novel, "Mister Jinnah: She Demons, (Dundurn Press, Toronto) was published in 2010. To confuse readers further, he adapted the script for Pizza 911 into a novel, which was published by Dundurn in June 2015. 

Hauka has also collaborated on two true crime books with former Province newspaper colleague Salim Jiwa: The Death of Air India Flight 182 (W.H. Allen and Co. London, U.K., 1986) and Margin of Terror: the Air India tragedy (Key Porter Books, Toronto, 2006).  Hauka has written a history of the birth of B.C. politics (and political malfeasance, which is sort of a true crime book), McGowan's War (New Star Books, Vancouver, 2003). He’s also the co-writer and executive producer of “Canyon War: The Untold Story” (Wunderman Film, 2008), a ground-breaking documentary on the First Nations-Miners war of 1858. Broadcast on several networks (including the Aboriginal Peoples Television Network and the Public Broadcasting Service), the film won awards at the New York International Independent Film and Video Festival (Los Angeles, 2010) and Worldfest 2010 (Houston International Film Festival, Platinum Award, Best in Category).Hauka also somehow contrived to co-write The Motherlode musical revue (Newman and Wright Theatre Company, Barkerville), which staged 80 performances and 20 workshops in 45 communities while travelling 17,000 kilometers from Sparwood to West Vancouver  in the summer of 2008 and has nothing to do with crime whatever.
