During My Time: Florence Edenshaw Davidson, a Haida Woman
by Margaret B. Blackman
Published by University of Washington Press
Revised and Enlarged Edition
This book is the first life history of a Northwest Coast Indian woman. Florence Davidson, daughter of noted Haida carver and chief Charles Edenshaw, was born in 1896. As one of the few living Haida elders knowledgeable about the culture of a bygone era, she was a fragile link with the past. Living in Masset on the Queen Charlotte Islands, some fifty miles off the northwest coast of British Columbia, Florence Davidson grew up in an era of dramatic change for her people. One of the last Haida women to undergo the traditional puberty seclusion and an arranged marriage, she followed patterns in her life typical of women of her generation.
Praise for the first edition:
"The Haida have had a long and colorful history on the Northwest Coast of Canada and the Queen Charlotte Islands. Margaret Blackman has provided a unique study, a lovely oral history of a Haida woman, Florence Edenshaw Davidson. The author provides much more than a biographical sketch; she offers a solid study which places her subject in the broader picture of Haida life and offers an intimate glimpse in to the culture of 'Nani', her family, and her community of Masset on the Misty Isles off the coast of British Columbia. Florence Davidson shares with the reader many of her intimate thoughts, habits, accomplishments, and disappointments. . . . This is a fine book . . . a true contribution to our understanding of the Haida." - American Indian Quarterly
