As I Remember It 
Teachings (ʔəms tɑʔɑw) from the Life of a Sliammon Elder
By Elsie Paul, with Davis McKenzie, Paige Raibmon, and Harmony Johnson

UBC Press, RavenSpace Publishing

Available as a free open access publication.

Raised by her grandparents on their ancestral territory on the Sunshine Coast, Elsie Paul of the Tla’amin (Sliammon) Nation spent most of her childhood surrounded by the ways, teachings, and stories of her people. As her adult life unfolded against a backdrop of colonialism and racism, she drew strength and guidance from the teachings she had learned. In As I Remember It, she shares this knowledge with a new generation in an engaging style and innovative format.
