In the turbulent decade which produced the Canadian Confederation of 1867, a group of seasoned veterans of the American Civil War turned their attention to the conquest of Canada. They were Irish-American revolutionaries -- unique because they fought under their own flag. They were know as the Fenians and they believed that the first step on the road to the liberation of Ireland was to invade Canada. The Last Invasion of Canada vividly recaptures the drama of the decade. It recounts the fledgling nation's rag-tag, but patiotic, defence against an ememy committed to a glorious cause, but with on

Inuit women artists : voices from Cape Dorset by Odette Leroux( Book )

6 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 501 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Twelve women artists and writers open this rare window on the northern world of the Inuit." "From the nine artists, reminiscences of life on the land and thoughtful comments on the sources of inspiration for their art are interwoven with vivid images of a unique culture and a stern landscape." "From the writers, comments from different vantage points illuminate the experience of Inuit women in the modern world." "The voices of these women resonate throughout the book, recording their memories of a way of life that is threatened. Each one has a story to tell - of growing up female in a harsh environment, of adapting to new cultures and learning the nuances of new ways, of learning new art forms through which to portray the best - and worst - of their extraordinary lives. Each one speaks her concerns with energy: each artist illustrates her passions using art that is at once subtle and bold, delicate in detail yet forceful." "Cape Dorset sits at the very heart of Inuit culture. Since the late 1950s, this community has symbolized the essence of Inuit art, thanks to the widely acclaimed work of artists like Kenojuak Ashevak, Mayoreak Ashoona, Pitseolak Ashoona, Qaunak Mikkigak, Oopik Pitsiulak, Napachie Pootoogook, Lucy Qinnuayuak, Pitaloosie Saila and Ovilu Tunnillie. Their art - graphics, sculpture and jewellery - is shown here in 200 superbly printed reproductions, over 50 of which are in full colour."--Jacket

Living along the banks of the Fraser River, the Nlaka'pamux people of Spuzzum have a long history of contact with non-Aboriginal peoples. In 1808, they hosted Simon Fraser as an overnight guest, they later watched as Hudson's Bay Company employees hacked a path through the mountains for the fur trade, and over time they found themselves in the path of virtually every commercial and government initiative undertaken in the region over the past two centuries. Juxtaposing historical narratives and cultural interpretation from the community of Spuzzum with archival information, this book explores the history of Spuzzum in the light of concepts central to the Nlaka'pamux definitions of family, political authority, land, and cosmos
