UNAVAILABLE This title is no longer available from the publisher But Life is Changing volume 1 is a collection of personal experience accounts by five Cree elders from the Omushkegowuk area of northern Ontario. The Ojibway and Cree Cultural Centre recorded these oral histories from 1977 to 1993. The original audiotape recordings were translated from Cree into syllabics and later translated into English.
