This book was published as the catalogue to accompany an exhibition on native culture of the Pacific Northwest, that was on display at the Westfalian Museum of Natural History in Muenster, Germany, in 2005 and 2006.

Jacqueline contributed photos to both the exhibition and the book, as well as a project called “Into the Light: Residential School Survivors Speak” – a series of interviews and accompanying portraits of 16 residential school survivors.  “Into the Light” is a unique work, where survivors speak in graphic detail about the abuse they experienced at the residential schools, and how this has affected them as parents and grandparents, as well as how it has affected their communities and families.

This book was not available in Canada so, in 2009, Jacqueline Windh worked to import it and distribute it herself.  Keep an eye on this page for news about her upcoming promotional tour.

First Nations of the Pacific Northwest: Change and Tradition is available in selected BC bookstores and universities and by mail; for more information please click the link at the bottom of this page.
