Stoney Creek Woman

Bridget Moran
Mary John, the Stoney Creek woman, tells her life story, which is a graphic illustration of the 20th-century native experience in British Columbia. She recounts her love of the traditional hunter-gatherer life of her early childhood, the intense unhappiness and deprivation of the residential schools, and her arranged marriage, large family and involvement in employment and reserve life. Her story is remarkable, insightful and inspiring.
