Description

Honouring the Strength of Indian Women is a combination of many efforts inspired by Vera Manuel. Manuel’s dramatherapy groups generated several scripts and selected poems, plays, photos, short stories were collated by University of Manitoba Press First Voices, First Texts and The People and the Text project, from protected and archived works by Emalene Manuel, Vera’s sister. These works contribute to our understanding of Indigenous trauma and healing, yet they also provide a glimpse into the lives of Emalene and Vera Manuel and their decolonizing actions through plays, storytelling and poetry. This book is a compilation of residential school history through these media and the introduction and afterword make this a compelling and comprehensive read.
