Tricksters. Wisahketchahk spreadsheet

To finish up this week of Wisahketchahk stories, I don't have a book... I have a spreadsheet, which is FULL of books and articles from the Internet Archive, featuring 175 different Wisahketchahk stories. Here is a link to the spreadsheet:

This was part of a presentation for Maskwacis Cultural College; you can see the presentation here in the form of a Padlet: Writing with Wisahketchahk: Trickster Tales and Creative Writing Prompts.

Using the search tools at the Internet Archive to find all these stories was an amazing experience! This character's name is spelled in different ways in English, so searched diligently for all the different spellings, and I found so many stories, most of them from Cree storytellers, which made it even more exciting. 

As readers of this blog may know, oral arguments in the publishers' lawsuit against the Internet Archive will be heard on Monday, March 20. The proceedings are not being livestreamed, but you there will be a live-Zoom-commentary with Michelle Wu and Kyle Courtney: register for the link.
