Keeping the Sinixt WayBook - 2018
"What does it look like to return from Extinction? In this book, Sinixt storytellers and knowledge-keepers Marilyn James and Taress Alexis address the reality of their living culture in the face of Canada's bureaucratic genocide of their people in 1956. Through lively story and discussions by the authors, each chapter illuminates the Sinixt relationship with the upper Columbia River watershed and their quest to reclaim their rights and responsibilities in their x̆a?x̆a? tum xúla?x, their sacred homeland. Gorgeous illustrations and reflections by regional settler artists and writers give readers further opportunities to engage with the stories. Join them all to meet the trickster Snk'lip and the other Animal Beings who people the stories of the captik, the Sinixt oral history."--Publisher.
