This collection of reminiscences and personal stories tells us about the daily lives of Cree women over the past century: household chores, snaring rabbits, and picking berries, going to school, marriage, bearing and raising children. Seven Cree women share memories about their lives and the history of their people, and provide insights into the traditional teachings of a society where practical and spiritual matters are never far apart.
