This volume presents local, place-based knowledge gathered by Hall and artist Jerry Evans. From canoe-building to berry harvesting, from preparing moose nose to foraging for natural medicines, from stewarding eel populations to reclaiming language and traditional cultural practices, Towards an Encyclopedia of Local Knowledge: Chapter III: MiawpukekThe Middle River vividly presents the rich, place-based knowings and doings of this Indigenous community on the south coast of Newfoundland.
