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 The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King | Quill & Quire

"Novelist Thomas King describes his brilliantly insightful, peevish book about native people in North America as a “a series of conversations and arguments that I’ve been having with myself and others for most of my adult life.” Making no excuses for the intrusion of his own personal biases and the book’s lack of footnotes, King suggests we view The Inconvenient Indian not as history, but as storytelling “fraught with history."

Defying Maliseet Language Death - University of Nebraska Press

Defying Maliseet Language Death - University of Nebraska Press | IndigenouslLinks 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."

Thomas King on The Inconvenient Indian | CBC Books | CBC Radio | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

"Thomas King has spent a lifetime thinking about what it means to be Aboriginal in North America.  The author of a number of acclaimed books, including the novel Green Grass, Running Water, King also created and starred in the popular CBC Radio show Dead Dog Café. In 2003, he became the first aboriginal person to give the Massey Lectures.

 

In his new book, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America, King shares the fruits of his extended reflection on native identity. It's part humour, part history, part analysis and part personal meditation. King recently dropped by Studio Q to talk about the book."

NEW BOOK: Telling It to the Judge: Taking Native History to Court

NEW BOOK: Telling It to the Judge: Taking Native History to Court | IndigenouslLinks LiensAutochtones | Scoop.it

Telling It to the Judge: Taking Native History to Court by Arthur J. Ray. McGill-Queen's University Press : October 17, 2011.

 

Topics: Aboriginal law, Non-fiction , Canadian

 

Arthur Ray's extensive knowledge in the history of the fur trade and Native economic history brought him into the courts as an expert witness in the mid-1980s. For over twenty-five years he has been a part of landmark litigation concerning treaty rights, Aboriginal title, and Métis rights. In Telling It to the Judge, Ray recalls lengthy courtroom battles over lines of evidence, historical interpretation, and philosophies of history, reflecting on the problems inherent in teaching history in the adversarial courtroom setting. Told with charm and based on extensive experience, Telling It to the Judge is a unique narrative of courtroom strategy in the effort to obtain constitutional recognition of Aboriginal and treaty rights.
