When I Was Small -- I Wan Kwikwas: A Grammatical Analysis of St'at'imc Oral Narratives (First Nations Languages) by UBC Press at Translate This Blog. Hurry! Limited time offer. Offer valid only while supplies last. Collected in this book are the personal life histories of four female St’at’imc elders: Beverley Frank, Gertrude Ned, Laura Thevarge, and Rose
These texts are among the longest oral narratives of the Salish language to be grammatically analyzed. They are also of a rare type, in that they consist of personal memories rather than of myths or legends: They provide first-hand accounts of what it was like to be a female child growing up in the 1930s and ’40s both within St’at’imc communities and in residential schools. Important historical information is woven into the stories -- about events in the Lillooet area, the traditional St’at’imc way of life, and the consequences of contact with Western culture.
When I Was Small -- I Wan Kwikws will be of interest to members of St’at’imc communities, including teachers and curriculum developers, and to linguists, anthropologists, and others studying the St’at’imc, their culture, and their language.
