Description

Moose Meat and Wild Rice is a unique comic collection by one of Canada's first and most successful Aboriginal authors, who turns his talents to a mischievous (but never malicious) depiction of Ojibway and Ojibway-White relations, with the gentle satire cutting both ways.

Light, but nevertheless realistic, told as fiction but based in fact, the escapades undertaken by the populace of Moose Meat Point Reserve encompass havoc and hilarity, prejudice and pretence.

Contributor Notes

For his efforts in giving voice to the Ojibway people, Basil Johnston has received the Order of Ontario and honorary doctorates from the University of Toronto and Laurentian University. In 2004, he received the National Aboriginal Achievement Award for Heritage and Spirituality, and in 2007, he was given a Lifetime Achievement Award at the Anskohk Aboriginal Literature Festival and Book Awards.

Reader Reviews

wild rice and moose meat

Loved, cried and laughed through the whole book. A great insight on reservation living. The stories were written with humor but underlying it was sad how white prejudice influenced and controlled their existence specifically the Ojibway. The stories tell of escapades undertaken by the populace of Moose Meat Point Reserve. A great read to make you think and entertain.
