Smith is the author of Hippies, Indians and the Fight for  Red Power (Oxford University Press, 2012), which covers the period from the  mid-1960s Northwest “fish-ins” through the 1973 Wounded Knee standoff and  explores the alliance of leftists, hippies and other whites who supported Native  American–led Red Power movements.

Residential school memoir Fatty Legs signals a future for First Nations literature | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

A moving account of Pokiak-Fenton’s experiences as an 8-year-old in a Catholic residential school in Aklavik, a fur-trading settlement in the far north-eastern corner of the Northwest Territories, Fatty Legs has transcended its children’s literature status since its publication in 2010, and taken on residual value as inspiring evidence of the wealth of stories and writing talent in the under-represented literary culture of First Nations people.

Hockey helps aboriginal boy escape racism - Book Review

Hockey helps aboriginal boy escape racism - Book Review | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Indian Horse by Richard Wagamese

Douglas & McIntyre, 186 pages, $23

 

"He may not have meant to, but B.C. author Richard Wagamese captures the beauty of hockey as few sportswriters could hope to match.

His new novel, Indian Horse, is not essentially about hockey. But Wagamese's elegance in describing the game's power to fulfil, however temporarily, the needs of an aboriginal boy raises hockey to a kind of spiritual level."

How I Became A Ghost

~ Tim Tingle (author) More about this product
List Price: $18.95
Price: $13.66
You Save: $5.29 (28%)

"Told in the words of Isaac, a Choctaw boy who does not survive the Trail of Tears, HOW I BECAME A GHOST is a tale of innocence and resilience in the face of tragedy. From the book's opening line, "Maybe you have never read a book written by a ghost before," the reader is put on notice that this is no normal book. Isaac leads a remarkable foursome of Choctaw comrades: a tough-minded teenage girl, a shape-shifting panther boy, a lovable five-year-old ghost who only wants her mom and dad to be happy, and Isaac s talking dog, Jumper. The first in a trilogy, HOW I BECAME A GHOST thinly disguises an important and oft-overlooked piece of history."

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."

‘Indianthusiasm’: Romanticized ideas about First Nations life offer escapism for Germans | Canada | News | National Post

‘Indianthusiasm’: Romanticized ideas about First Nations life offer escapism for Germans | Canada | News | National Post | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"More than a century ago, as Germany was striving to match the imperial ambitions of the other European powers, the imaginations of its people were captured by the tales of Old Shatterhand, a German travelling the American frontier, and his loyal Apache guide, Winnetou.

 

German writer Karl May’s serial adventures were beloved by Hitler and Albert Einstein alike; they spoke to the colonial longings of the German people at the time.

 

The genre continues to have a weird resonance in Germany even today, said Hartmut Lutz, who is teaching a course in German “Indianthusiasm” at the University of Calgary this term as a visiting scholar — one who has studied topics related to Germany’s treatment of North American aboriginal cultures for decades."
