La Grande Paix
Author: David Bouchard
Format: Paperback
  • Hiawatha, aussi appelé Ayenwhatha, est l’un des personnages des Premières Nations le plus célèbre à travers le monde. Il est surtout connu grâce à la poésie de Henry Wadsworth Longfellow dont le magnifique poème La chanson de Hiawatha contient cependant de nombreuses inexactitudes. Ce récit poétique est largement dû à l’artiste Rotinonhshón:ni Raymond Skye. Ce dernier attribue une bonne partie de ses connaissances aux enseignements traditionnels de son défunt père, membre de la Nation Seneca, et feu le chef cayuga : Jacob E. Thomas, considéré comme l’autorité en matière de Grande Paix, aussi connue comme la Grande Loi.
    Les Rotinonhsón:ni sont un peuple fort et fier. La vérité et la compréhension constituent une grande partie de leur vision et de leur mission. C’est certainement selon les termes de la Grande Paix que les Rotinonhsó :ni auraient parlé à leurs enfants, du grand Chef Ayenwahtha. Non pas comme d’un héros, mais comme d’un homme qui a oeuvré avec Pacificateur à l’établissement de la Grande Paix, la Grande Loi.

Legends of Vancouver
Format: Paperback

  • Legends of Vancouver was written at the turn of the last century and first published in 1911. The written collection of legends and myths was the result of a meeting, and later the fast friendship, between a Mohawk princess and a West Coast Squamish Chief.

    Before her arrival on the West Coast, Pauline Johnson had acquired notoriety as a poet and performer and as an active proponent of Mohawk culture. That she was drawn to local legends was a natural extension of an already prolific career as a writer and stage performer. Retiring from the stage when she reached Vancouver in 1909, it was only right that she continue to share her stories. These were first published separately in a local newspaper and later published in book form. Johnson’s book of native legends quickly became a classic of Vancouver’s literature.

    We can still detect to this day the joy of discovery that Johnson imprinted in her writing of the legends. Whether just arrived or long time residents, readers will share with Johnson emotions of discovery when seized, through her writings, by the beauty of the surroundings, just as she was 100 years ago. This book is also a portrait of a very young Vancouver with its much loved Stanley Park, its rough and tumble gold diggers and its millennium old First Nations.

    Pauline Johnson’s tomb is set in Stanley Park, near Third Beach. In 1922, almost 13 years after her death, the City of Vancouver paid tribute to this magnificent artist and her legacy by erecting a monument in her honour.

    This 100th anniversary edition combines a mix of modern and archival pictures of Vancouver to provide a sense of where these legends took place and how they are incorporated in the modern city.
