A Manuscript, written in 1954 to aid missionaries working among the Cree-speaking natives of northern Saskatchewan, Canada, is the basis for this reflective narrative. The reader is surrounded by emblems of language, religion and trade; the images challenging the redefinition of the aboriginal structure to fit a Judeo-Christian mold. This is a found poem.
