Dear Professor Drapeau,
Forgive the English. My French is improving--but not not the degree
that I would wish to subject you to it.
If I recall correctly, you told me at the conference in Montreal of an
Innu text involving an overwintering pet moose, and generously offered
to share it. Needless to say, I would appreciate receiving it. I have
nothing comparable to exchange--but enclose fur trader George Nelson's
Ojibwe pet bear cub story as partial reciprocity.
I should note that I and many of my students over the years are admirers
of your 1986 article "Entre le reve et la realité: le mode subjectif en
Montagnais." If you have since written more on the /subjectif/, I would
like the references.
Thank you and best,
