Comprising a series of conversational recollections, this book
tells the story of Rena Point Bolton, a Stó:lo matriarch and
craftswoman. The narrative touches on Point Bolton's childhood by
the Fraser River during the Depression, her ancestor, the warrior
Xéyteleq, and her later years on a reserve. While the Stó:lo people
kept secret their cultural practices to avoid persecution by
paternalistic institutions, Point Bolton helped to revive some of the
old crafts and ceremonies. The result of a long-term collaboration
between Richard Daly and Point Bolton, this book attests to Point
Bolton's desire to inspire her people to blend traditional
"ways of knowing" with the pursuit of modern education.

Richard Daly is a social anthropologist,
translator, editor, and Aboriginal rights consultant who resides near
Oslo, Norway. Rena Point Bolton is a Xwélmexw (Stó:lo)
weaver and artist who helped to revive knowledge of and interest in
Canadian Aboriginal art.
