"Blanket Toss Under Midnight Sun consists of approximately 80 archival black-and-white and color photographs of Indigenous family life from 1925 to 1985, a period of sixty years. Thematically, the images portray the resilience and resourcefulness of Indigenous communities across Canada, and illustrate a way of life that has been diminished or lost in modern times and is little known today. To counter the current preponderance of stories about oppression and misery, the narratives are comprised of positive stories celebrating indigenous experience, as well as the stories of the photographers themselves"-- Provided by publisher.
