Modern Canadian poets and authors of fiction have incorporated aspects of First Nation cultures and characters in a range of works. In some cases portraits of First Nation individuals and communities are central to these literary works while in others they are less prominent. What are the similarities and differences between the depictions of First Nation peoples? Are the literary treatments of them reliable? What may we learn about Canadian historical and political realities in Canada, as well as gender roles, from these portrayals? Please submit 200-word abstracts through your new or previous Northeast Modern Language Association (NeMLA) user account by going to https://www.buffalo.edu/nemla.html and following the links.
