Abstract

Abstract:

What forms does biography take in my community, Musqueam? My experience listening to storytellers gathered together demonstrates a) the inseparability of narrating lived experiences and carrying forward Musqueam’s distinct teachings; b) the collective nature of telling and remembering; and c) how this form of oral tradition—of life-telling—requires its own set of listening skills. I conclude that group storytelling can inform other forms of representation such as biography and ethnography.
