Book Description :

Two young sisters are taken from their home and family. Powerless to change their fortunes, they are separated, and each put into different foster homes. Yet over the years, the bond between them grows. As they each make their way in a society that is, at times, indifferent, hostile, and violent, one embraces her Métis identity, while the other tries to leave it behind. In the end, out of tragedy, comes an unexpected legacy of triumph and reclamation. Portage & Main Press and the Manitoba Writer’s Guild Inc. are pleased to announce the selection of In Search of April Raintree for the On The Same Page: Manitoba Reads! project.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: -, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, language: English, abstract: In this essay "Two sisters, April and Cheryl Raintree" I will write about the following, the characters April and Cheryl Raintree in "In Search of April Raintree" by Beatrice Culleton have brutal experiences of victimization and each of them has great difficulties in working through them. I will discuss how the main characters deal with the experience of victimization, how they come to terms with it, or not as in the case of Cheryl, and finally how they grow beyond it. The term paper starts with a small history section, where the reader will get to know some interesting information about the Metis. After a summary of the story I will focus on the three steps of the girl's life in growing up. In the main section, I will show and discuss with certain examples, how April and Cheryl are confronted with racism. In detail, I also will point out how April and Cheryl, as an individual, come in terms with the experience of the brutal victimization. At the end I will show my own opinion within the conclusion, about the book, the author and the topic of this essay. This essay is supposed to be a junior seminar paper, it looks more than it is because I have included a lot of citations out of the originally Text. I did this, that it is easier for the reader to understand the story and its mood.

Book Description :

Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject American Studies - Literature, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, language: English, abstract: In this paper I will discuss the facts about finding the own identity as a mixed race woman in Canada through out two books:  Halfbreed by Maria Campbell  In Search of April Raintree by Beatrice Culleton Maria Campbell’s Halfbreed is the story of her own life and with it the book can be seen as a biography, whereas In Search of April Raintree by Beatrice Culleton is a novel about mixed blood sisters living in Winnipeg. This essay will compare and contrast these two books as illustrations of life as a “half-breed” in western Canada. Most importantly, attention will be directed to their conclusions in finding the own identity. While reading this essay, you will notice that I have put my main focus on the book by Beatrice Culleton. For many Canadians the distinction is taken to be white or black, between ‘Status Indians’ legally recognized as native and the remainder of the population. Indians carry a status card and are entitled to exemption from sales tax, special education funding, a vote in band council elections and other legal rights that differentiate them from other Canadians. There are a lot of individuals who do not fall into either of theses categories, while the legal divisions between these two groups are clear. As a group the Métis are neither Europeans nor Natives, but in their bloodlines they contain the blood, of both of these two ethnic groups. Similar, with fur traders working throughout the Canadian wilderness for centuries, there are many people who share European and Native ancestry. Both books end with a form of “healing”, finding their own identity, for the main characters, April and Maria. The roots and origins of these characters developments will be examined.

Book Description :

In 1983, the book In Search of April Raintree was published to great acclaim, heralding the voice of an important new writer, Beatrice Mosionier (then Culleton). With honesty and clarity, Mosionier explored the story of two M�tis sisters as they struggle with loss, identity, and racism. Yet readers have long asked: how much of April's story comes from the author's own life? Come Walk With Me, Beatrice's answer to that question, is a moving memoir that follows a bewildered three-year-old through a dramatic journey to adulthood. Recounting a life that, at times, parallels that of her most memorable fictional character, and at others, diverges from it, Mosionier searches to make sense of her losses--her sundered family, her innocence, and her dignity--only to triumph as a woman and writer, fulfilled artistically, politically, and personally.

Book Description :

"The Secwepemc People, known by non-natives as the Shuswap, are a Nation of 17 bands occupying the south-central part of the Province of British Columbia, Canada. The ancestors of the Secwepemc people have lived in the interior of British Columbia for at least 10,000 years. At the time of contact with Europeans in the late 18th century, the Secwepemc occupied a vast territory, extending from the Columbia River valley on the east slope of the Rocky Mountains to the Fraser River on the west and from the upper Fraser River in the north to the Arrow Lakes in the south. Traditional Shuswap territory covers approximately 145,000 square kilometres (56,000 square miles). The Nation was a political alliance that regulated use of the land and resources, and protected the territories of the Shuswap. Although the bands were separate and independent, they were united by a common language - Secwepemctsin - and a similar culture and belief system. The traditional Secwepemc were a semi-nomadic people, living during the winter in warm semi-underground "pit-houses" and during the summer in mat lodges made of reeds. The traditional Shuswap economy was based on fishing, hunting and trading. Shuswap diet consisted of fish, meat, berries and roots. The lifestyle, based on respect for nature, depended on traditional aboriginal skills and knowledge handed down from generation to generation by oral tradition. However, in the 19th century the Secwepemc culture was transformed with the appearance of fur traders, missionaries, gold miners, and settlers .... "--://www.secwepemc.org/about/ourstory.
