Description

Earth Elder Stories: The Pinayzitt Path is an authorized student support resource for Alberta Education grade 10, 11, and 12 courses. Alexander Wolfe is a Saulteaux and Ojibwe storyteller and the keeper of his family's oral history. The easy reading, brief stories provide students with an account of Ojibwe and Saulteaux oral traditions as they relate to history and ceremonies. Included in this collection are stories about the origin of dances such as grass dance, and how the ceremonial dances were banned by the government and churches. The stories are important because they provide students with a first-hand understanding of the impact of Canadian government policies on the Saulteaux and Ojibwe Nations.
