Ancestral Images — Niniskamijinaqik — The Mi'kmaq in Art and Photography
by Ruth Holmes Whitehead • hardcover • art & photos • 144 pages
A TERRIFIC COLLECTION OF PHOTOS that begin with rock carvings by the Mi’kmaq themselves, presenting a unique culture and way of life through the remarkable, complex lives of individuals.
Here are the earliest surviving European depictions—decorations on the maps of Champlain. Finally, “humanity frozen in the stillness of a photograph”—each image a moment or person with a deeply personal history, transformed into vivid immediacy.
