About this product
- DescriptionThis book provides an insider view of Haida language, history, and culture, and offers a perspective on Haida culture that comes t only from external research but also from intimate kwledge and experiences the author has had as a Haida Nation citizen. The book's focus on language - past, present, and future - allows insight into the Haida language documentation and revitalization process that will benefit other cultures currently addressing similar issues with their language. Being able to write and discuss Haida culture as an insider affords the opportunity to instantiate the role of a First Nations scholar including the intricacies involved in having a voice about one's own culture and history. A First Nations person publishing a book about his or her own culture is a rare opportunity. However, such publications will become more common as other indigeus scholars and writers emerge from other margins around the world.
- Author BiographyFrederick White, PhD, is Associate Professor in the English Department at Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania. His book Ancestral Language Acquisition among Native Americans: A Study of a Haida Language Class addresses the question of how Native American and First Nations students learn and participate in the classroom setting.
