Description

Twenty years after the publication of its groundbreaking first edition, this collection continues to provide the most comprehensive coverage of Canadian Native literature available in one volume. Emphasizing the importance of the oral tradition, the anthology offers a diverse selection of songs, short stories, poems, plays, letters, and essays crafted by exceptional writers from First Nation, Inuit, and Metis communities across Canada.

About the Authors
Daniel David Moses is "a coroner of the theatre who slices open the human heart to reveal the fear, hatred and love that have eaten away at it. His dark play… can leave its audience shaking with emotion." (Kate Taylor, The Globe and Mail, about The Indian Medicine Shows). Moses, a Delaware from the Six Nations lands on the Grand River, lives in Toronto, where he writes, and in Kingston, where he teaches in the Department of Drama at Queen’s University.
