Product description

NOW IN!

Comprising a series of conversational recollections, this book tells the story of Rena Point Bolton, a Stó:lo matriarch and craftswoman. The narrative touches on Point Bolton's childhood by the Fraser River during the Depression, her ancestor, the warrior Xéyteleq, and her later years on a reserve. While the Stó:lo people kept secret their cultural practices to avoid persecution by paternalistic institutions, Point Bolton helped to revive some of the old crafts and ceremonies. The result of a long-term collaboration between Richard Daly and Point Bolton, this book attests to Point Bolton’s desire to inspire her people to blend traditional “ways of knowing” with the pursuit of modern education.
