Seaweed in the Soup
Authors:
Stanley Evans
Content Territory: Coast Salish
Format: Paperback

Silas Seaweed is back on the beat as the street-smart Coast Salish cop. A gardener is found dead and the prime suspects are two young local party girls. Silas is handed the case that soon takes a bloodier turn when a policeman's wife is killed. Silas begins to suspect that these murders and other events are related to the recent tide of gang-related crimes that has been sweeping British Columbia. Just as he draws closer to finding concrete evidence, Silas finds his own reputation in danger and is suspended from the police force. His quest to clear his name and find the killers leads him from Victoria's loud and steamy nightclubs and bars to the remote and quiet islands of Desolation Sound.

The fifth mystery in this popular series, Seaweed in the Soup is a thrilling and suspenseful tale that skilfully combines a hard-boiled mystery narrative with the mythology of the Coast Salish.

Seaweed on the Rocks
Authors:
Stanley Evans
Content Territory: Coast Salish
Format: Paperback

In this fourth mystery of the Silas Seaweed series, neighborhood cop Silas Seaweed is as always sensitive to his Native culture, but when he's confronted by a ten-foot-tall bear on the outskirts of his hometown, Silas suspects that this is no creature from the unknown world but someone out to con him. And Silas is right, but his attempts to unmask the bear lead him into a labyrinth of blackmail and murder. Along the way he investigates a homeless peoples' sit-in, a burglary in the office of hypnotherapist Dr. Lawrence Trew, and the barely legal world of small-time hood Titus Silverman.Infused with native mythology of the Pacific Northwest and written with the signature fast-paced plot and strong characters of the other three Silas Seaweed mysteries, Seaweed on the Rocks takes you from the picture-postcard views of a quaint garden city to the deeper dark side of its underworld.

Indigenous Storywork
Content Territory: Coast Salish, Indigenous Canadian, Sto:lo
Format: Paperback
Jo-ann Archibald worked closely with Coast Salish Elders and storytellers, who shared both traditional and personal life-experience stories, in order to develop ways of bringing storytelling into educational contexts. Indigenous Storywork is the result of this research and it demonstrates how stories have the power to educate and heal the heart, mind, body, and spirit. It builds on the seven principles of respect, responsibility, reciprocity, reverence, holism, interrelatedness, and synergy that form a framework for understanding the characteristics of stories, appreciating the process of storytelling, establishing a receptive learning context, and engaging in holistic meaning-making.

Knitting Stories: Personal Essays and Nine Coast Salish-inspired Knitting Patterns
Authors:
Sylvia Olsen
Content 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 Oratories
Content 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
Authors:
Various Authors
Content 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

The Haunting of Vancouver Island: Supernatural Encounters with the Other Side
Authors:
Shanon Sinn
Format: Paperback

A compelling investigation into supernatural events and local lore on Vancouver Island.

Vancouver Island is known worldwide for its arresting natural beauty, but those who live here know that it is also imbued with a palpable supernatural energy. Researcher Shanon Sinn found his curiosity piqued by stories of mysterious sightings on the island—ghosts, sasquatches, sea serpents—but he was disappointed in the sensational and sometimes disrespectful way they were being retold or revised. Acting on his desire to transform these stories from unsubstantiated gossip to thoroughly researched accounts, Sinn uncovered fascinating details, identified historical inconsistencies, and now retells these encounters as accurately as possible.

Investigating 25 spellbinding tales that wind their way from the south end of the island to the north, Sinn explored hauntings in cities, in the forest, and on isolated logging roads. In addition to visiting castles, inns, and cemeteries, he followed the trail of spirits glimpsed on mountaintops, beaches, and water, and visited Heriot Bay Inn on Quadra Island and the Schooner Restaurant in Tofino to personally scrutinize reports of hauntings. Featuring First Nations stories from each of the three Indigenous groups who call Vancouver Island home—the Coast Salish, the Nuu-chah-nulth, and the Kwakwaka’wakw—the book includes an interview with Hereditary Chief James Swan of Ahousaht.

Reviews
"Sinn offers a grounded approach to understanding how the folklore developed. He is also out to bust some myths. That is, to distinguish fact from fiction and not be afraid to hurt some feelings along the way."— Otaku No Culture blog, September 2017

"I really encourage everyone to pick up the book. There are a lot of great stories, a lot of great history, and again, things you're just not going to find anywhere . . . it's all really fascinating."— The Ghost Story Guys Podcast, October 2017
