In the 1890s, a girl in a small Canadian town like Shediac, New Brunswick, didn't have much to do - except tease boys, learn to draw and paint, go visiting on the train, and spend hilarious evenings playing parlour games and singing around the piano. Throughout her teenage years, Sadie Harper kept a diary, faithfully or fitfully, depending on her physical and romantic health of her household duties. As a young woman, she wrote ofher experiences at Mount Allison Ladies' College. Many years later, on a t rip to England with her husband, University of Manitoba professor Frank Allen, Sadie regaled her mother and sisters with news of social engagements, London fashions and the people she encountered." - from the rear cover.

408 PETTIPAS, Katherine Severing the Ties that Bind: Government Repression of Indigenous Religious Ceremonies on the Prairies
University of Manitoba Press, Winnipeg, 1994, ISBN:0887556388 
PETTIPAS, Katherine. Severing the Ties that Bind: Government Repression of Indigenous Religious Ceremonies on the Prairies. (Winnipeg): University of Manitoba Press, (1994). Pp (8),[ix]-xiv,(10, maps, photos),(2),[3]-304. 8vo, cardcovers. Religious ceremonies were an inseparable part of Aboriginal traditional life, reinforcing social, economic, and political values. However, missionaries and government officials with ethnocentric attitudes of cultural superiority decreed that Native dances and ceremonies were immoral orun-Christian and an impediment to the integration of the Native population into Canadian society. Beginning in 1885, the Department of Indian Affairs implemented a series of amendments to the Canadian Indian Act, designed to eliminate traditional forms of religious expression and customs, such as t he Sun Dance, the Midewiwin, the Sweat Lodge, and giveaway ceremonies. However, the amendments were only partially effective. Aboriginal resistance tothe laws took many forms; community leaders challenged the legitimacy of t he terms and the manner in which the regulations were implemented, and theyaltered their ceremonies, the times and locations, the practices, in an at tempt both to avoid detection and to placate the agents who enforced the law. Katherine Pettipas views the amendments as part of official support for the destruction of indigenous cultural systems. She presents a critical analysis of the administrative policies and considers the effects of government suppression of traditional religious activities on the whole spectrum of Aboriginal life, focussing on the experiences of the Plains Cree from the mid-1880s to 1951, when the regulations pertaining to religious practices were removed from the Act. She shows how the destructive effects of the legislation are still felt in Aboriginal communities today, and offers insight into current issues of Aboriginal spirituality, including access to and use of religious objects held in museum repositories, protection of sacred lands and sites, and the right to indigenous religious practices in prison.

PIKE, Bev (ed.). Once Upon a Poolside. (Winnipeg) : Video Pool, 2005. Pp [1]-[88]. Illustrated. Oblong small 8vo, illustrated orange card covers. “Once Upon A Poolside is a lushly decorative publication styled on a Victorian story book. Edited by artist Bev Pike, the articles in this issue of Poolside approach media arts criticism through narrative devices and the subjective voice. Pike explains, “I wanted to focus on the ways today’s media artists tell stories. The book itself reads like a video – you can pause the story to check out the marginalia, or you can fast-forward to the close-ups.” This hand-sized book features tales about dream-time, political wanderlust,ghostly hauntings, visceral responses, womanliness, Videon Cable TV, virtu al relationships and interactive audio art. Writers are: artists Erika MacPherson and Roewan Crowe, film professor Brenda Austin-Smith, curators Mary Reid and Amy Karlinsky, filmmaker Jeff McKay, performance artist Courtney Siebring, and sound art aficionado Deanna Radford.” - Poolside Magazine.

References to Labrador (also Port Burwell, Hebron, Okkak), Newfoundland, and Newfoundlanders in index.

"Although most of the vast and largely uninhabited Far-Northem regions of the world are now tolerably well known geographically, this expedition discovered large islands and other important features. But for the most part Professor Polunin and his companions were engaged in the intensive scientific exploration of which he is a leading exponent, having worked in more Arctic and sub-Arctic regions than perhaps any other man in science living to-day (this was his tenth and, he tells us, most thrilling northern expedition to date). In the narrative and special appendices we arew given vivid accounts of how many hundreds of miles of coastline were corrected for the charts, how land points were 'fixed' over more than half a million square miles for the world map, how certain lakes and rivers and ice-fields were found to be entirely different in shape and size from what had previously been believed, and how the plant life of these inhospitable regions was collected and the vegetation resources surveyed." - from the dustjacket.

420 PURDY, Al LOWRY, Malcolm ACORN, Milton HAIG-BROWN, Roderick No Other Country. First Edition in dustjacket.
McClelland & Stewart, Toronto, 1977, ISBN:0771072082 
PURDY, Al. No Other Country. (Toronto): McClelland and Stewart, (1977). First Edition. Pp (14),15-187,(5). 8vo, dark grey cloth. Spadoni and Donnelly 2893. "Travelling on freight rars or driving a camper, tracking a story or just striking out, Al Purdy has criss-crossed Canada on junkets from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from borderline to tree-line and beyond to the Arctic. And during it all, he's gotten to know Canadians as only Al Purdy can ... 'In a relaxed, yarn-spinning tone, Purdy, whose 35-year career is among the most distinguished in Canadian literature, takes a long and leisurely gander at Canada and the people who make it what it is. People like Angus Mowat ("'Listen, I'm doing this piece about you. Don't be so damn difficult!'"), and like Brian Glennie of the Toronto Maple Leafs ("a blueline basher and a hammer made of flesh"), and Montreal poets and B.C. fishermen, Armed Forces Search and Rescue personnel in Labrador and men who rode the rails in the Depression. He tells about racial tension in Aklavik, about novelists Malcolm Lowry and Roderick Haig-Brown, about Churchill, B.C. [sic] and Harbour Deep, Newfoundland. With captivating eloquence he discovers himself and us, leading the way on a journey of the mind as well as of miles, which means we can go back any time. Which we'll gladly do. " - from the front dj flap. Contents: : Introduction: The Cartography of Myself ; 1. The Iron Road [riding the rails]; 2. Light on the Sea: Portraits of BC Fishermen; 3.
