Product Description


Archibald's research studies how people, including herself, live with their stories; moreover, how people can live well with their stories. [...] Here, stories are not material for analysis; they are not folklore with its implication of museum culture, and they are certainly not "data." Stories take on their own life and become teachers. [...] In her spiraling, iterative style, Archibald gets as close as any book I have found to a truly narrative pedagogy, as opposed to a pedagogy of narrative. [...] To stay with her writing is to experience how stories work in and on a life. -- Arthur W. Frank, University of Calgary Canadian Journal of Sociology, Vol.33, No. 3 [The] author's self-reflection on the multiple roles she balanced as a researcher is appreciated, and her text serves as an excellent testimonial for the efficacy and successes of researchers working collaboratively with indigenous communities. -- M.A. Rinehart, Valdosta State University Choice, Vol.46, No.01 Jo-Ann Archibald, Q'um Q'um Xiiem, has gifted us here with a sensitive glimpse into the thoughts of her Sto:lo elders. In doing this, she presents folklorists with a great deal of useful emic information. And she offers guidelines for educators who hope to use story with children. Her elders show us how to not just tell stories ... but how to make meaning of the tales through storywork. -- Margaret Read Macdonald Western Folklore
