Résumé

« [...] je ne peux m’empêcher de me demander si l’omission de révéler et d’enseigner les horreurs commises par les ancêtres des Américains et des Canadiens caucasiens contre les peuples des Premières Nations d’Amérique du Nord [...] est une dissimulation intentionnelle ou une indication que ces personnes gardent toujours à l’esprit la notion que la vie d’une personne des Premières Nations n’a aucune valeur. » Extrait de l’épilogue, Daniel Paul

Première traduction en français du célèbre livre de Daniel Paul, We were not the savages (Fernwood Publishing). Paru pour la première fois en 1993, ce premier livre d’historiographie autochtone en est à sa 3e édition, et incorpore les recherches continues de l’auteur. Il montre clairement que les horreurs de l’histoire continuent de hanter les Premières Nations aujourd’hui... mais aussi tous.tes les Canadien.nes.

Synopsis

"As a person of First Nation ancestry I cannot help but wonder if the failure of Caucasian Americans and Canadians to reveal and teach about the horrors their ancestors carried out against North American First Nation Peoples is a deliberate cover-up, or an indication they hold within their minds a notion the life of a First Nation person is valueless–not worthy of human considerations." - From the introduction, N. Daniel Paul A first French translation of Daniel N. Paul’s famous book, We were not the savages (Fernwood Publishing). Published for the first time in 1993, this first book of First Nations historiography is now in its third edition and incorporates Daniel Paul’s ongoing research. It clearly shows that the horrors of history still rain upon the First Nations people of the present.

Elles se sont inexorablement insinuées dans l’esprit vulnérable de Zee jusqu’à en expulser avec violence ses pensées et ses idées personnelles. Elle tente de se libérer de leur emprise, mais le rythme de son coeur s’accélère et s’affole dans sa poitrine.

Résumé Depuis qu’elle est née, Zee a un talent, ou bien une intelligence particulière. Elle perçoit des choses que personne d’autre ne perçoit. Zee entend ce que les gens pensent, ressent ce que les gens ressentent. À travers leur regard, Zee se voit elle-même, et cette vision la transforme. Parfois, Zee est la fille précoce de ses quatre adultes. Des fois Zee est un ado voyou de Brooklyn, New York, un ado qui joue du basket et s’attire des ennuis. Ses quatre adultes s’inquiètent, lui font passer des tests, mais Zee anticipe leurs craintes, et les déjoue. Petit à petit, Zee apprend à grandir et à se mouler aux attentes de la société et du regard des autres, au risque de se perdre elle-même.
