What does it look like to come back from extinction? Sinixt storytellers and knowledge-keepers Marilyn James and Taress Alexis restore knowledge of their people’s presence in their ancestral homeland in this immersive multimedia ebook.
Stories are the ancestral bloodlines of the Autonomous Sinixt—what we share and pass down generationally are the memories that flow through our veins and carry culture and connection to our təmxʷulaʔxʷ, our homeland.
The second edition of Not Extinct: Keeping the Sinixt Way, published by Maa Press and now presented in ePub format as a Legible Living Book, invites readers to engage with the stories of Sinixt təmxʷulaʔxʷ through lively oral storytelling, original artwork, written discussion, and reflection. Featuring integrated audio and video, the book includes three new stories and many updates that touch on critical issues such as Indian Residential Schools, Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Sinixt cosmology, salmon reintroduction, missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, and the contemporary treaty process. Following work with the Sinixt dialect, snselxcin, through the T’kikstn Language Revitalization Project, this edition also includes updated Sinixt words in the text.
