Think Indian is a collection of essays and presentations that Mr. Johnston has delivered to numerous educational conferences and gatherings across Canada and the United States. Topics covered, while all relating to the critical need to protect and encourage our language include how we are ÒOne Generation Away From Extinction,Ó ÒCowboys and IndiansÓ to ÒYou canÕt tell stories in the summertimeÓ and the title essay ÒThink Indian.Ó
ÒThink IndianÓ bumper stickers pleaded and advocated in the 60Õs, ÒThink Indian.Ó And while the plea may have been intended for general consideration, it represented in many instances a personal appeal for the exercise of a greater degree or intensity of Indianness, particularly by those who were prevented, for a variety of reasons, from practicing real Indianness. (Excerpt from book)
Über den Autor: Basil Johnston has written 15 books in English and 5 in Ojibway to show that there is much more to North American Indigenous life than social organization, hunting and fishing, food preparation, clothing, dwellings and transportation. Among the books that Basil has written are Ojibway Heritage, Indian School Days, Crazy Dave, and Honour Earth Mother (Kegedonce Press). Basil believes the key to understanding culture is language and to this end he has developed audio programs on cassette and CD. For his work Johnston has received numerous awards including the Order of Ontario and Honourary Doctorates from the University of Toronto and Laurentian University.
