Treaty of Fort Stanwix | Books by David D Plain Blog

Nanabush as the narrator, Plain can slip into a more direct way of revealing the legends and recording the history of his people. I first became friends with Pauline Shirt, the founder of Wandering Spirit Survival School, when I moved to the housing cooperative where Shirt raised her family in During our year friendship, I became an assistant to Pauline Shirt, helping her run solstice and equinox ceremonies in a park overlooking the Don River for the 10 years that I lived as her neighbour in Toronto. I fasted with her family several times, and she was my main research consultant through work on the narrative history of Wandering Spirit Survival School that I wrote for my M.

Nanabush narrate his history, but most people from mainstream Canada have little grasp of the lived experiences, life views, or politics of Indigenous peoples. My graduate studies revealed that media reports from the time of earliest settlement, and especially during the late s, were twisted by social patterns of the day to paint the original inhabitants of this land as less than human. Yet, many contemporary Canadians remain unwilling to examine the impact this had on descendants of the First Nations who were corralled on small reserves of land, here and there, usually in out-of-the-way locations.

Plain has not set himself up to correct that wrong in this book, or even to talk about it. Instead, he tells his people their history during the lifetime of Young Gull, a period lasting Moons. He designed the book to offer guidance for reading and referring back to the events it portrays by establishing a point-form reference-list of the main events under each chapter title on the contents page.

This list of chapter events is then repeated at the beginning of each chapter. Plain has clearly done his research within his community, using the stories he heard in his family and others as he was growing up, then confirming the incidents through further research. Even as he asserts the facts that are known, such as the terrible loss of life suffered by First Nations due to disease carried by the settlers, he has not set out to talk about the history between First Nations and settlers.

This is the era of the Trading Posts. His focus falls largely upon the Anishnaabek and Iroquois relations. When the Ojibwa decide to declare war, they are portrayed as being just brutal as the Iroquois and, yes, both sides sometimes torture their victims. In the early s, Mr. Nanabush informs his audience, the Anishnaabek were trading partners with the Huron, who ended up in a war over territory and trading to settlers with the Iroquois.

By the mid- to lates, that war left the Huron peoples decimated. Atironto, the War Chief, asked Young Gull to take them to his village. Young Gull convinced the Huron to leave their weapons in a pile before they went to his village and pleaded their case. The Anishnaabek had not suffered through war with the Iroquois, so they decided not to take up arms against the Iroquois.

However, they were sympathetic with the Huron. After a long discussion, the Grand-Council agreed to allow the Huron to move into their territories so they could be protected p. He is prepared for his vision quest through the sweat lodge, and the descriptions of the process involved are provided in simple, straight-forward language.

One gets a clear sense of the ceremonies as they were lived-through by historical figures in the book, with the addition of an ethereal presence as the Ojibwa teen experiences his vision and discovers his spirit guides. My nephew — Black Robes divide Huron, one half against the other. Black Robes have no care for Huron; put French snow in water, make it sweet. Only want to throw water on people. It is easy to imagine this conversation taking place. This book is not a simple history.
