Cecil Paul
Regular price CAD $30.00

Who better to tell the narrative of our times about the restoration of land and culture than Wa'xaid (the good river), or Cecil Paul, a Xenaksiala elder who pursued both in his ancestral home and the Kitlope - now the largest protected unlogged temperate rainforest left on the planet. Paul's cultural teachings are more relevant today than ever in the face of environmental threats, climate change, and social unrest, while his personal stories of loss from residential schools, industrialization and theft of cultural property (the world renowned Gps'golox pole) put a human face to the survivors of this particular brand of genocide. 

Told in Cecil Paul's singular, vernacular voice, Stories from the Magic Canoe of Wa'xaid spans a lifetime of experience, suffering and survival.
