West Coast chef connects contemporary thinking with aboriginal traditions | AboriginalLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Traditional foods meet contemporary trends in the cooking of Chef Andrew George Jr.

 

His new cookbook, Modern Native Feasts (Arsenal Pulp Press, $21.95), is a celebration of the foods he loved as a kid. A member of the Wet'suwet'en Nation, George grew up in Telkwa, B.C., in a family of six children. Trout and salmon, moose, deer and rabbit were often on the dinner table."

Review of Shadows Cast by Stars by Catherine Knutsson | Quill & Quire

"It is 200 years in the future, and 16-year-old Cassandra Mercredi is living with her twin brother, Paul, and their father on the outskirts of the Corridor, home to the general population. Because of their aboriginal heritage (they come from a Métis background), the Mercredis are among the few who are immune to Plague, a disease that poses a constant threat and causes slow and painful death. Antigens in aboriginal blood offer protection, making it highly sought after."

 

Patricia_Kn's insight:

Quill & Quire's review of Metis author Catherine Knutsson's Shadows Cast by Stars. This is a Canadian YA book.

How I Became A Ghost

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."
