Janice Bone: Water, dreams and Treaties: Agnes Ross’ Mémékwésiwak stories and Treaty No. 5

Janice Bone and her thesis advisors, 2018

Congratulations to Janice Bone on completing her Master of Arts in Native Studies at the University of Manitoba, and thanks to her for sharing this link to her thesis, newly released by UM Libraries as a downloadable PDF.

Janice’s grandmother, Agnes Marie Ross of Pimichikamak, told her stories in Cree of the mêmêkwêsiwak, that Janice recorded, transcribed and translated into English. The thesis also examines other writing about the mêmêkwêsiwak. (I look forward to having the chance to read it!)
