I vividly recall some of the early days of Emma Larocque's years at Goshen College, from 1969 to 1973. I was her first academic advisor. I recall seeing her walking down the main sidewalk and into my office-with her head down, a somber expression on her face, sort of under a cloud. Because she was from Canada, she was not regarded as a "foreign" student, although she must have felt very "foreign" since she had come to Goshen College from her Metis Indian community in Alberta. What I mistook as unhappiness, or even resentment, in her first days in Mennonite Indiana was no doubt "culture shock" and apprehension of what might lie ahead in this strange place.
I lost contact with Emma when I left the campus for graduate school, and as she finished work for her degree in English and Communication. Our initial contacts, and the anguish I thought I saw in her, haunted me through the years. Had we somehow failed her? I had noticed poems she had written in an anthology of native writings in Canada, from her position as Professor of Native Studies at the University of Manitoba. So as we planned this issue I invited her to submit a memoir. I was delighted that she accepted the task immediately and cheerfully, since she has treasured her years at Goshen College and her continuing contact and friendships with Mennonites in Canada.

It is clear that Larocque, Wakatamah and Wallace made a few good friends of Mennonite "individuals," but that visiting this exotic community had more positive effects upon their lives than did Gulliver's visits on his life and spirit.

Emma LaRocque, Ph.D.
Dr. LaRocque, a Plains-Cree Métis, is a scholar, author, poet, and a social and literary critic. She grew up in a Cree-speaking, hunting/trapping Metis culture in Northeastern Alberta. LaRocque is a renown scholar in the advancement of Native Studies as a teaching discipline and an intellectual field of study. She has written extensively on colonization, Canadian historiography, misrepresentation, racism, identity, violence against women and Aboriginal literatures and has received national and international recognition for her papers and poetry. She is a 2005 recipient of the National Aboriginal Achievement Awards. In 1975, Dr. LaRocque authored Defeathering the Indian, a study of stereotypes of 'indians' in public schools. Her most recent book, When the Other is Me: Native Resistance Discourse 1850-1990, was released earlier this year. This book situates Native literature as a resistance response to the overwhelming evidence of dehumanization in Canadian historical and literary writing. Dr. Emma LaRocque is a professor in the Department of Native Studies at the University of Manitoba.
