Irish fairy and folk tales
"The leprechaun is an iconic Irish symbol. But for all its popularity, the folk tales from which it emerged are largely unknown. In this anthology, the poet William Butler Yeats has collected and collated the enthralling stories of the Irish peasantry. They include ghost stories, tales of the devil, legends of witches and fairy doctors."-- Provided by publisher.
Kâ-pî-isi-kiskisiyân = The way I remember
Ratt, Solomon, author.
"A residential school survivor finds his way back to his language and culture through his family's traditional stories. When reflecting on forces that have shaped his life, Solomon Ratt says his education was interrupted by his schooling. Torn from his family at the age of six, Ratt was placed into the residential school system--far from the love and comfort of home and family. In The Way I Remember, Ratt reflects on these memories and the life-long challenges he endured through his telling of autobiographical stories and traditional tales. In many ways, these stories reflect the experience of thousands of other Indigenous children across Canada, but Ratt's stories also stand apart in a significant way: despite the destruction wrought by colonialism, he managed to retain his mother language of Cree by returning home to his parents each summer. Ratt then shifts from the âcimisowina (personal, autobiographical stories) to âcathôhkîwina (sacred stories), the more formal and commonly recognized style of traditional Cree literature, to illustrate how, in a world uninterrupted by colonialism and its agenda of genocide, these traditional stories would have formed the winter curriculum of a Cree child's education. Presented in Cree th-dialect standard roman orthography, syllabics, and English, Ratt's particularly Cree sense of humour shines, making kâ-pî-isi-kiskisiyân / The Way I Remember an important and unique memoir that emphasizes and celebrates Solomon Ratt's perseverance and life after residential school."-- Provided by publisher.

Vagina obscura : an anatomical voyage
Gross, Rachel E., author
"A scientific journey to the center of the new female body. The Latin term for the female genitalia, pudendum, means "parts for which you should be ashamed." Until 1651, ovaries were called female testicles. The fallopian tubes are named for a man. Named, claimed, and shamed: Welcome to the story of the female body, as penned by men. Today, a new generation of (mostly) women scientists is finally redrawing the map. With modern tools and fresh perspectives, they're looking at the organs traditionally bound up in reproduction-the uterus, ovaries, vagina-and seeing within them a new biology of change and resilience. Through their eyes, journalist Rachel E. Gross takes readers on an anatomical odyssey to the center of this new world-a world where the uterus regrows itself, ovaries pump out fresh eggs, and the clitoris pulses beneath the surface like a shimmering pyramid of nerves. Full of wit and wonder, Vagina Obscura is a celebratory testament to how the landscape of knowledge can be rewritten to better serve everyone"-- Provided by publisher.
Weigel, Matthew James, 1985- author.
"An Indigenous resistance historiography, poetry that interrogates the colonial violence of the archive. Whitemud Walking is about the land Matthew Weigel was born on and the institutions that occupy that land. It is about the interrelatedness of his own story with that of the colonial history of Canada, which considers the numbered treaties of the North-West to be historical and completed events. But they are eternal agreements that entail complex reciprocity and obligations. The state and archival institutions work together to sequester documents and knowledge in ways that resonate violently in people's lives, including the dispossession and extinguishment of Indigenous title to land. Using photos, documents, and recordings that are about or involve his ancestors, but are kept in archives, Weigel examines the consequences of this erasure and sequestration. Memories cling to documents and sometimes this palimpsest can be read, other times the margins must be centered to gain a fuller picture. Whitemud Walking is a genre-bending work of visual and lyric poetry, non-fiction prose, photography, and digital art and design."-- Provided by publisher.
