Defying Maliseet Language Death - University of Nebraska Press

Defying Maliseet Language Death - University of Nebraska Press | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it
"Defying Maliseet Language Death is an ethnographic study by Bernard C. Perley, a member of this First Nation, that examines the role of the Maliseet language and its survival in Maliseet identity processes. Perley examines what is being done to keep the Maliseet language alive, who is actively involved in these processes, and how these two factors combine to promote Maliseet language survival. He also explores questions of identity, asking the important question: “If Maliseet is no longer spoken, are we still Maliseet?” This timely volume joins the dual issues of language survival and indigenous identity to present a unique perspective on the place of language within culture."

Sitansisk

Sitansisk | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Sitansisk is an uplifting documentary film that uses “Christmas Lights” as an expression for the spiritual, cultural, social, political, and economic awakening of an aboriginal people in Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada.

 

This powerful, documentary film explores the “Festival of Lights,” an event that takes place in the Wolastuk / Maliseet community of Sitansisk (St. Mary's First Nation). What started in the 1990’s with a few individuals putting up Christmas lights on their houses has become a large community-wide event that represents a spirit of generosity, hope and a brighter future for the Maliseet people and their culture."

New Brunswick Heritage Online Newsletter: Beaded Maliseet Cap Returns to Fredericton Region Museum

New Brunswick Heritage Online Newsletter: Beaded Maliseet Cap Returns to Fredericton Region Museum | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

On June 20th, 2012, the Fredericton Region Museum received a forty-pound crate, heavily padded and packaged with the utmost care –- in it was one of the museum’s most valuable yet mysterious artifacts: A blue beaded Maliseet cap. The cap was returning from the Canadian Conservation Institute, where it had been undergoing extensive conservation work since April of 2009.

 

The headpiece first arrived at the museum many years ago, and was in poor condition –- its interior fabric was deteriorating, its colors were fading, and its top portion displayed a large tear. However, the sheer intricacy of its beadwork and its dazzling array of colors were enough to convince the C.C.I. of its value. The cap was accepted under a conservation grant, where the cost of its repairs and refurbishment were to be covered by the Institute itself. Upon its return, the cap is truly a sight to behold –- restored to what conservators in Ottawa were able to discern was its original appearance, the cap’s bright colors and intricate beadwork make it a stunning addition to the Fredericton Region Museum’s already-extensive collection of native craft.
