This volume of legends, excerpts from the written historical record, essays, photographs, interviews, and reminiscences, is a unique assemblage of materials that present the lives of the James Bay Cree from the early times of the spoken word as legend to the astounding contemporariness of their present-day dotcom world.
Touching on the various communities, from those washed by the waters of James Bay to the inland settlements of a distinct people who call themselves Eeyou, this collection of words and images is built around the ideas of past-value origins, present-day adaptation to contemporary values and needs, and future dreams and challenges.
This is a record that not only includes first contact, but is strong in its emphasis on the evolving patterns and present-day institutions that co-function effectively with traditional ways.
