Knitting Stories: Personal Essays and Nine Coast Salish-inspired Knitting Patterns
Author: Sylvia Olsen
Traditional Territory: Coast Salish
  • Ask Sylvia Olsen—author, knitter and expert on the
    world-famous Cowichan sweaters—whether there’s any
    more to be said about knitting, and her answer is a
    resounding “Yes! Of course, yes. Knitting stories are as
    varied as the things we knit and, like all good stories, they
    tell us about ourselves and what it means to be a human
    being. We will never grow tired of stories like that.”

    In Knitting Stories, Sylvia’s storytelling talents are in
    full evidence as she shares her musings and insights about
    knitting, design, community, family and the creation of
    narratives from both wool and words. Full of delightful
    personal anecdotes, this collection of essays also reflects
    on the author’s knowledge of, and experience with,
    creating and marketing traditional Cowichan sweaters.
    She also describes her more recent forays into Salish
    fusion designs.

    Knitters will love the gorgeous examples of Olsen’s
    work, stunningly photographed by Joshua Lawrence Studio.

    Seven original patterns are included for items including a
    snuggly infinity scarf, bolero, sweater, skirt, toque, poncho and fingerless gloves. Readers can learn how Margaret Atwood came
    to own a pair of Sylvia’s gloves in the essay titled Am I
    Knitting Stories or Writing Sweaters? and then pick up
    needles and wool to make a pair by following the instructions
    provided.

    These essays and knitting patterns are, by turn, inspiring,
    thought-provoking and entertaining. Like the knitted
    items themselves, the stories collected here are warm and
    reassuring—products of a generous spirit that are timeless,
    beautiful and perfect for sharing.

Memory Serves and Other Essays
Author: Lee Maracle
Traditional Territory: Coast Salish
Format: Paperback
  • Memory Serves gathers together the oratories award-winning author Lee Maracle has delivered and performed over a twenty-year period. Revised for publication, the lectures hold the features and style of oratory intrinsic to the Salish people in general and the Sto: lo in particular. From her Coast Salish perspective and with great eloquence, Maracle shares her knowledge of Sto: lo history, memory, philosophy, law, spirituality, feminism and the colonial condition of her people. Powerful and inspiring, Memory Serves is an extremely timely book, not only because it is the first collection of oratories by one of the most important Indigenous authors in Canada, but also because it offers all Canadians, in Maracle's own words, "another way to be, to think, to know," a way that holds the promise of a "journey toward a common consciousness."Memory Serves: Oratories:"The topics she covers, the approaches she employs, and the strength of her language highlight the reasons the author has been a driving force in Canadian aboriginal culture for decades. Memory Serves adds to the vital canon of Canadian aboriginal literature."--Alexis Kienlen, Quill and Quire"Memory Serves is one of Maracle's greatest books. It is a read that imparts wisdom from a great writer and it will leave you feeling empowered knowing that the wisdom of Maracle's words are being shared with you."--Christine Smith (McFarlane)

Folk-Tales of the Coast Salish
Author: Various Authors
Traditional Territory: Coast Salish
Format: Paperback
  • First published in 1934, this collection of tales was recorded and edited by Thelma Adamson (1901–83), a student of Franz Boas and one of the first women to conduct ethnographic fieldwork in the Pacific Northwest. A major contribution to our knowledge of western Washington Salish oral traditions, Folk-Tales of the Coast Salish contains 190 texts from nineteen consultants—most collected in English or in English translation. The 155 stories represent Upper Chehalis and Cowlitz Salish narrative traditions, primarily myths and tales, and constitute the largest published body of oral literature for either of these groups. Adamson included as many as four variants of the same tale-type, and Adele Froehlich prepared a useful forty-three-page section of abstracts with comparative notes from eight regional text collections. Folk-Tales of the Coast Salish provides a rich data source for those interested in the content and comparative analysis of Native texts told in English. With few exceptions, the tales refer to the time “when all the animals were people.”

    This new edition enhances Adamson’s seminal work with the inclusion of a biographical sketch of Adamson and of her friend and noted ethnomusicologist George Herzog, who produced the appended music transcriptions
