Commencing by explaining how the word Ininew refers to the phrase 'mixing of four,' Wilfred Buck embarks upon a series of dazzling stories: 'herein is the story of how I lived and how I died and how I lived again along with the dreams I have dreamed and the visions I have seen.' In this unique collection of writings Buck, an Ininew Dream Keeper (Pawami niki titi cikiw), illustrates, four separate stages of personal experience. The stories in I Have Lived Four Lives are designed as aids to the discovery and healing for Indigenous youth, and encompass a range of hilarious and vivid recollections that revolve around visions and dreams, and that ultimately trace Buck's path to becoming a teacher in Indigenous cosmology and astronomy.
