A young woman from Montreal follows the geese to the Inuit North in this deeply felt witnessing of contemporary Aboriginal life, as shaped by decades of colonial rule and government neglect. Having worked in the North for years, Juliana L�veill�-Trudel's account of the Indigenous experience offers a portrait of a valiant people undaunted by institutionalized racism, but in many cases broken by domestic violence, and corrupted by corporate mining and the presence of temporary workers up for the summer from the South in search of big paycheques. Delivered across two searing monologues, Nirliit is a testament to a people's perseverance as much as it is an apology by those who inflicted those circumstances upon them. L�veill�-Trudel courageously transcends the borders between historical divisions to make a meaningful individual connection.

Uqalurait presents a comprehensive account of Inuit life on land and sea ice in the area now called Nunavut, before extensive contact with southerners. Drawing on a broad range of oral history sources - from nineteenth-century exploration accounts to contemporary community-based projects - the book uses quotes from over three hundred Inuit elders to provide an 'inside' view of family life, social relations, hunting, the land, shamanism, health, and material culture. For the first time, the reader encounters Inuit culture and traditional knowledge through the voices of people who lived the life being described. Based on a larger research project developed under the guidance of six Inuit from across Nunavut, Uqalurait consists of thousands of quotations organised thematically into cohesive chapters. The book describes the seasonal rounds of four different groups, capturing the fact that while Inuit across Nunavut had much in common, there was also much to distinguish them from each other, living as they did in many small groups of people, each with its own territory and identity. Given the recent creation of Nunavut and the current focus of attention on the Arctic due to climate change, Uqalurait is a timely source of insight from a people whose values of sharing and respect for the environment have helped them to live contentedly for centuries at the northern limit of the inhabitable world.

Dies ist die Geschichte einer Familie im Krieg, an einem Ort ohne Namen, die in vielen Gegenden der Welt spielen könnte. Wie in einem Kammerspiel, hochaktuell und zugleich von überzeitlicher Gültigkeit, erzählt der Roman in einer klaren und poetischen Sprache von Manipulation und Moral, von Bruderliebe und von einem Geheimnis. Als ihre Großeltern ums Leben kommen, endet die Kindheit der Zwillinge Amed und Aziz abrupt. Einer der Brüder soll zum Märtyrer werden. Der unheilbar kranke Aziz darf aus religiösen Gründen nicht geopfert werden, sagt der Vater. Aber Amed hat Angst. Und seine Mutter will nicht beide Söhne verlieren. Larry Tremblays Roman „Der Name meines Bruders“ ist ein eindrucksvolles Plädoyer gegen den Krieg, in Kanada ein großer Verkaufserfolg und mittlerweile Schullektüre. Er wurde mit dem Preis der Buchhändler von Québec ausgezeichnet.
