   schema:reviewBody ""Paper Talk: A History of Libraries, Print Culture, and Aboriginal Peoples in Canada before 1960 explores the relationships between the introduction of Western print culture to Aboriginal peoples by missionaries, the nineteenth-century development of libraries in the Indian schools, and the twentieth-century establishment of community-accessible collections. Although missionaries and the Department of Indian Affairs envisioned books and libraries as assimilative and "civilizing" tools, Edwards shows that some Aboriginal peoples articulated Western ideas of print culture, literacy, books, and libraries as a means to assist their own cultural, social, and political aspirations. Edwards's book also illustrates that the contemporary struggle of Aboriginal peoples in Canada to establish community libraries has a historical basis and thus many of the obstacles today are similar to those encountered by earlier generations."--Jacket." ;
