Legendes De Vancouver
Traditional Territory: Mohawk
Format: Paperback
  • La Mohawk E. Pauline Johnson (1862–1913), poète et personnalité de la scène au tournant du XXe siècle, se lie d’amitié avec Joe Capilano, chef de la tribu des Squamish sur la côte Ouest du Pacifique. En s’entretenant avec le vieil homme, Johnson recueille plusieurs légendes sur des lieux de la région de Vancouver. Elle transcrit ces légendes en anglais et les publie en 1911. L’ouvrage remporte un succès populaire et sera réédité à plusieurs reprises.

    Un siècle plus tard paraît enfin la première traduction française des Légendes de Vancouver. Un nouveau public peut à son tour s’émerveiller de l’imaginaire et de la culture des Premières Nations, tout en découvrant le talent littéraire d’une de leurs plus célèbres porte-parole.

    E. Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake), connue en son temps à la fois comme une dame victorienne et une princesse mohawk, demeure l’une des grandes auteures canadiennes.

    Cette édition française comporte des photographies d’Anne-Marie Comte qui a revisité certains lieux évoqués par Johnson.

Hiawatha and the Peacemaker
Traditional Territory: Cayuga, Mohawk
Format: Hardcover
  • Born of Mohawk and Cayuga descent, musical icon Robbie Robertson learned the story of Hiawatha and his spiritual guide, the Peacemaker, as part of the Iroquois oral tradition. Now he shares the same gift of storytelling with a new generation.

    Hiawatha was a strong and articulate Mohawk who was chosen to translate the Peacemaker’s message of unity for the five warring Iroquois nations during the 14th century. This message not only succeeded in uniting the tribes but also forever changed how the Iroquois governed themselves—a blueprint for democracy that would later inspire the authors of the U.S. Constitution.

    Caldecott Honor–winning illustrator David Shannon brings the journey of Hiawatha and the Peacemaker to life with arresting oil paintings. Together, Robertson and Shannon have crafted a new children’s classic that will both educate and inspire readers of all ages.

    Includes a CD featuring a new, original song written and performed by Robbie Robertson.
