"...And They Told Us Their Stories":
A Book of Indian Stories
"These stories play an important role in the reserve communities because that is the way the people of the First Nations pass on their history. [...] History in all of its many expressions, from family stories to the chronicling of major events, is not decreasing in its importance to our people. [...] Because we are busy teaching our children to become a reading and writing generation, it becomes imperative that we take charge of our history and put it into a form that allows access to our past, thus enabling our children to better deal with the present and future."
"The people of the First Nations have experienced a debilitating flow to their self-esteem and their history suffers as a consequence of this self-doubt. [W]henever a book like this comes off the printing press[, ...] it tells of individuals and communities becoming strong enough to believe that what they have to say and write is worthwhile." -- Chief Harry Lafond, from the Foreword
