  • A manuscript, written in 1954 to aid missionaries working among the Cree speaking natives of northern Saskatchewan, Canada, is the basis for this reflective narrative. The reader is surounded by emblems of language, religion, and trade -- the images challenging the redefinition of the aboriginal structure to fit a Judeo-Christian mold. This is a found poem.
