Most widely held works by H. Christoph Wolfart
Ana kâ-pimwêwêhahk okakêskihkêmowina = The counselling speeches of Jim Kâ-Nîpitêhtêw by Jim Kâ-Nîpitêhtêw( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2008 in English and Cree and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A monolingual Cree speaker from Onion Lake, Saskatchewan, ka-pimwewehahk / Jim Ka-Nipitehtew was a highly respected orator; in later years he served as senior member of the Council of Elders at the Saskatchewan Indian Cultural College in Saskatoon. His discourses have great force and authority, and no speeches of similar scope or depth have ever been published in their original form. In these eight speeches, ka-pimwewehahk speaks of his concerns for young people, the proper performance of rituals, and also gives an account of the signing of Treaty Six." "These are superb examples of authentic spoken Cree texts. The Cree texts are presented first in syllabic orthography, and then in roman orthography and English translation on facing pages. The text is complemented by a set of interpretive notes, a comprehensive Cree-English glossary, and an English index to the glossary."--Jacket
Âh-âyîtaw isi ê-kî-kiskêyihtahkik maskihkiy = They knew both sides of medicine : Cree tales of curing and cursing by Alice Ahenakew( )

13 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and Cree and held by 1,244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in 1912, Mrs. Alice Ahenakew grew up in a traditional Cree community in north-central Saskatchewan. As a young woman, she married Andrew Ahenakew, a member of the prominent Saskatchewan family, who later became a well-known Anglican priest and Cree healer." "Mrs. Ahenakew's personal reminiscences include stories of her childhood, courtship and marriage, as well as an account of the 1918 influenza epidemic and encounters with a windigo. The centrepiece of this book is the fascinating account of the bear vision to which the Rev. Andrew Ahenakew owed his healing powers. Mrs. Ahenakew concludes with the story of an old woman's curse and its terrifying results." "This book presents Mrs. Ahenakew's original Cree text along with a full English translation. It also includes an introduction discussing the historical background of the narrative and its style and rhetorical structure, as well as a complete Cree-English glossary."--Jacket

Kwayask ê-kî-pê-kiskinowâpahtihicik = their example showed me the way : a Cree woman's life shaped by two cultures by Emma Minde( Book )

7 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 220 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Emma Minde's portraits of the family into which she was given in marriage are touching and instructive. They show us a young woman leaving her home at Saddle Lake, Alberta, to join a household of strangers at Hobbema - with not only a husband she has yet to meet, but also four powerful adults who will shape her life: her husband's parents, Mary-Jane and Dan Minde, and Dan Minde's younger brother Sam and his wife Mary." "Emma Minde's autobiography focusses on her relationship with these two women, Mary-Jane Minde and Mary Minde. The education that the newly arrived wife received in their households was built on obedience, hard work and a firmly held set of beliefs, seen as essential preparation for a life of uncertainty and rapid change, hardship and constant struggle." "These reminiscences, told to Freda Ahenakew, offer rare insights into a life history guided by two powerful forces: the traditional world of the Plains Cree and the Catholic missions with their boarding-schools, designed to re-make their charges entirely. Rarely has the interplay of these two world views - often in conflict, but often also, it seems, very much in harmony with one another - been sketched so eloquently as in Emma Minde's autobiography." "Emma Minde's stories are presented as she told them in Cree, with a translation into English on facing pages. With its Cree-English Glossary and an English Index to the Glossary, this work is an important Cree language resource."--Jacket

Mitoni niya nêhiyaw - nêhiyaw-iskwêw mitoni niya = Cree is who I truly am - me, I am truly a Cree woman by Sarah Whitecalf( Book )

3 editions published in 2021 in English and held by 26 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Strong women dominate these reminiscences: the grandmother taught the girl whose mother refused to let her go to school, and the life-changing events they witnessed range from the ravages of the influenza epidemic of 1918-20, to murder committed in a jealous rage, to the abduction of a young woman by underground spirits who grant her healing powers upon her release. A highly personal document, these memoirs are altogether exceptional in recounting the thoughts and feelings of a Cree woman as she copes with the impacts of colonialism but also, in a key chapter, with her loneliness while tending a relative's children in a place far from home--and away from the company of other women. Her experiences and reactions throw fresh light on the lives lived by Plains Cree women on the Canadian prairies over much of the twentieth century. Sarah Whitecalf (1919-1991) spoke Cree exclusively, spending most of her life at Nakiwacîhk / Sweetgrass Reserve on the North Saskatchewan River. This is where Leonard Bloomfield was told what would be collected as Sacred Stories of the Sweet Grass Cree in 1925 and where a decade later David Mandelbaum apprenticed himself to Kâ-miyokîsihkwêw / Fineday, the step-grandfather in whose family Sarah Whitecalf grew up. In presenting a Cree woman's view of her world, these memoirs directly reflect the spoken word: Sarah Whitecalf's reminiscences are here printed in Cree exactly as she recorded them, with a close English translation on the facing page. These chapters constitute an autobiography of great personal authority and rare authenticity."--
