The Cupar and District Heritage Museum has donated 5 indigenous /metis books to the permanent collection of the Cupar Library. The museum is only open seasonally and so we felt the community would have better access if the books were held at the local library.
The books are:
Honouring the Buffalo A Plains Cree Legend. for children in English and Cree. By Judith Silverthorne.
Mixed Blessings: Indigenous Encounters with Christianity In Canada. By Tolly Bradford.
Firewater: How Alcohol is Killing My People (and Yours). By Harold Johnson.
The Education of Augie Merasty: A Residential School Memoir. By Joseph Auguste (Augie) Merasty
with David Carpenter.
Stories of the Road Allowance People. Translated and put on paper By Maria Campbell
paintngs By Sherry Farrell Racette.
