Summary "Night Spirits is the story of the Sayisi Dene of northern Manitoba. In their own words, they describe how the Canadian government abruptly relocated them from their ancestral homelands and left them to live in slums on the outskirts of a frontier town. The Sayisi Dene - "the People from the East"--Offer a stark and brutally honest account of their near destruction as a people and their determination to reclaim their lives. It is a dark story, but one that is told in hope."--Jacket.
