From Publishers Weekly:
In this collection of 14 papers spanning two decades, Ridington ( Trail to Heaven : Knowledge and Narrative in a Northern Native Community ), an anthropology professor at the University of British Columbia, provides an acute, absorbing look at the customs and beliefs of the Dunne-za Indians of British Columbia. In "Fox and Chickadee," an elderly Indian named Chickadee uses storytelling to teach then-Ph.D. candidate Ridington the difference between collecting data and learning. "Telling Secrets" describes how private and public knowledge are joined as personal "vision quests" become part of the communal myth. In "A True Story," an elderly woman recalls her "vision quest," an encounter with the spirit of a sleeping bear. A glimmer of the way this hunting community adapted to trade with the European settlers is given in "From Hunt Chief to Prophet." And "The Medicine Fight" shows how a community without a formal political structure can distribute political power through an institutionalized competition. Photos not seen by PW .

Royal octavo (9 1/4" x 5 3/4") bound in original publisher's green cloth with black lettering to spine in original jacket. First edition. In this sensitive , insightful volume, drawn from over twenty-five years' experience with the Dunne-za Indians, Ridington advocates his unique language of anthropology-and in so doing he communicates the themes of cultural and individual knowledge, visionary empowerment, shamanic transformation, and the dialogic basis of ethnographic authority within the evolving context of a humanistic cultural anthropology. The multiple narratives in this work translate Indian reality into the reality o academic anthropology, allowing the Dunne-za to give voice to their knowledge and power in a way that should be heard by all cultural anthropologists contemplating field work today.
