Halxeywa: A Torch Lighting Story (Paperback)

$21.70


Halxeywa (Torchlighting) describes the traditional Stolo practice of nighttime fishing using a fire built in a canoe. The story is told fluently in the Halq'emeylem language (a.k.a. Upriver Halkomelem), by one of the last remaining native speakers of the language. The illustrated book comes with audio lessons that help to master all of the vocabulary and phrases, as well as an interactive CD-ROM version with phrase-by-phrase notes for learners and teachers.
*Please note: If you want the audio CD or CD-ROM, please contact the author. Trafford does not supply these CDs.**
This is a 'must have' item for anyone interested in learning Halq'emeylem, and is useful model for language revitalization.
