Volume 2 of Cultural Recall can be summarized as a collection of short stories that highlights ordinary Mi'kmaw Peoples life's struggles as told by the People themselves or Mi'kmaw storytellers. Stories tell about our war heroes, parents teaching Mi'kmaw traditions to their children, how our People cope with family tragedies and loss of love ones and tales of survival while hunting or traveling on the country. The historical keynote story relates the life and last days of one of, (Newfoundland's last nomadic Mi'kmaw families as told through the eyes of Marie), who was a true hero.

To the world a book to embrace a deeper understanding for all parts of government/peoples, to heed a nation to nation relationship in a spirit that only we, (the people), Mi'kmaq tribe, is in balance with Mother Earth, who still cannot define our people, only a tribe, one of the first peoples that roamed North America. With respect for our dignity and to uphold the laws of the land. So I can now rest my case on my last leg of a journey that no other has to walk for generations to come. With the Great Spirit, giver of all life in the universe, I present to the world those stories, poems, legends. Keeping in mind everyone has a story to tell in every culture of the world.

"Within each of us there dwells a Shaman. There also lives a Teacher, a Healer, and a Warrior." We each have to journey within, and indeed spend a duration of our life in the oppression period which led our people down the wrong path, away from self-esteem and a healthy lifestyle. When there is a merging of all facets, then we AWAKEN, and we are whole. Until all aspects of personality merge, we may wander unfocused through life, forever seeking the missing pieces of ourselves. The Mi'kmaq People are also on a long Journey. For years we have wandered in the lonely wilderness, with our culture and heritage shredded. Finally, we are finding our missing pieces. This book will not only teach you about the Mi'kmaw Culture. It will also tell you the story a Shaman's journey in prose, poetry, photos and paintings. By reading this book, Ancient Spirit of the White Wolf (Victor James Muise) hopes that it will help awaken the Shaman that is hidden within you!
