A Memoir of Mi'kmaw Life in Newfoundland

Excerpt

“One of the main reasons I started writing down a few stories was the sense of loss I felt when Nickley died, in the spring of 1991. I realized then that the strong links of culture, custom, and language that bound us to our ancestors were slipping away.... At the age of 16 or so, I trudged hundreds of miles behind Nickley, over barren and mish, and up and down river. I can still hear his voice at sunset, singing the old Mi’kmaw hymns while chopping wood, making moulds, or showing me how he could “sculp” an otter with his old razor-sharp breadknife. You could always tell Nickley from a distance because of his way of walking two steps and then running a ways. He was quick to laugh—big bursts of laughter that echoed across the hills.”
