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. The stories are a valuable collection because they provide an insight into Cree lifestyle and worldview. The Cree refer to these stories as advice texts. Five Elders discuss a variety of topics including child-rearing, life in the bush, hunting and trapping, and the role of Elders. The stories appear in English and syllabics. The syllabics texts are an excellent primary source of Cree reading material.
