About: Sing the Brave Song
Sing the Brave Song is adynamic and comprehensive scrutiny of the historic relationship between Indian people, the church and vast repercussions endured by former students of Indian residential schools in Canada. Judith Ennamorato's method for reporting aboriginal traditions is absorbing and potent. From first time interviews, the reader will see through the eyes of Indian children who were culturally and geographically removed from their homes and families by force; spending as long as ten months a year in institutions where they were forbidden, under threat of corporal punishment, to speak their own language, the only language they knew.
Sing the Brave Song is published by Raven Press, 501 Main Street, Schomberg, Ontario, Canada LOG 1TO (905) 939-1027 .
