Inuit women artists : voices from Cape Dorset by Odette Leroux ( Book )
7 editions published between 1994 and 1995 in English and held by 576 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Twelve women artists and writers open this rare window on the northern world of the Inuit." "From the nine artists, reminiscences of life on the land and thoughtful comments on the sources of inspiration for their art are interwoven with vivid images of a unique culture and a stern landscape." "From the writers, comments from different vantage points illuminate the experience of Inuit women in the modern world." "The voices of these women resonate throughout the book, recording their memories of a way of life that is threatened. Each one has a story to tell - of growing up female in a harsh environment, of adapting to new cultures and learning the nuances of new ways, of learning new art forms through which to portray the best - and worst - of their extraordinary lives. Each one speaks her concerns with energy: each artist illustrates her passions using art that is at once subtle and bold, delicate in detail yet forceful." "Cape Dorset sits at the very heart of Inuit culture. Since the late 1950s, this community has symbolized the essence of Inuit art, thanks to the widely acclaimed work of artists like Kenojuak Ashevak, Mayoreak Ashoona, Pitseolak Ashoona, Qaunak Mikkigak, Oopik Pitsiulak, Napachie Pootoogook, Lucy Qinnuayuak, Pitaloosie Saila and Ovilu Tunnillie. Their art - graphics, sculpture and jewellery - is shown here in 200 superbly printed reproductions, over 50 of which are in full colour."--BOOK JACKET
Spuzzum : Fraser Canyon histories, 1808-1939 by Andrea Lynne Laforet ( Book )
4 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 365 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Living along the banks of the Fraser River, the Nlaka'pamux people of Spuzzum have a long history of contact with non-Aboriginal peoples. In 1808, they hosted Simon Fraser as an overnight guest, they later watched as Hudson's Bay Company employees hacked a path through the mountains for the fur trade, and over time they found themselves in the path of virtually every commercial and government initiative undertaken in the region over the past two centuries. Juxtaposing historical narratives and cultural interpretation from the community of Spuzzum with archival information, this book explores the history of Spuzzum in the light of concepts central to the Nlaka'pamux definitions of family, political authority, land, and cosmos

The Sjovold site : a river crossing campsite in the Northern Plains by Ian G Dyck ( Book )
3 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 158 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Compared to the spectacular bison-kill sites for which the Plains region is justifiably famous, relatively little is known about the more ordinary aspects of ancient everyday life. Where did people make their homes? Why were particular sites chosen? Who might occupy a given camp and how long might they stay? What activities were carried out? The Sjovold site, situated on the west bank of the South Saskatchewan River in the far northern Plains, offers a long and detailed archaeological record with which to address these questions. People camped here more than twenty times over a period of 3,200 years, from 1850 B.C. to A.D. 1350. This book describes and interprets the findings from excavations of each encampment through this long sequence." "Locally, the Sjovold site offered shelter from the prevailing winds and access to the rich resources of a wooded creek valley. More generally, it seems to have been near the boundary between two vegetation zones: the grasslands and the aspen parklands. It is also near the Missouri Coteau, a long line of broken hills used historically as a war road. Perhaps more important, however, is its proximity to one of the few good river crossings in the region. This study specifies the criteria for defining and recognizing a river crossing campsite. It also explores many features of life in ancient times, inferring, along with the cultural and historical framework, societal dimensions such as group size and gender, trade and travel, as well as a wide variety of daily activities."--BOOK JACKET
