Index. 8vo, illustrated black card covers."Miísel Joe is the traditional and administrative chief of Newfoundlandís Conne River Miíkmaq Reserve. Through a series of taped interviews with Raoul Andersen and John Crellin, Miísel Joe tells his life story, including hisunorthodox education through the many migratory jobs that took him as far west as Alberta. Miísel Joe also speaks of a community fighting for the right to determine its own future. He tells of the struggle to revitalize traditional values in the face of racial prejudice. He reveals the steps being taken by aboriginal leaders, both in this province and elsewhere, to help their people gain respect in a white manís world without losing their own identity. Miísel Joeís story is his own, but it is also a window into Miíkmaqhistory, culture, and traditions." - from the back cover. Very good. 12.00
