It was not until more recent work, particularly that of Ann Morrison Spinney (1991, 1996, 1997, 1999, 2006, 2009), however, that the historical power negotiations between Indigenous medicine people, Christian clergy, and political leaders (in her case, among the Passamaquoddy of Maine) were represented with a focus on agency on both sides. Although much of her work is centred south of the Canada-US border, the people with whom she works travel into maritime Canada, and her work will inform Canadian scholarship (particularly in Atlantic Canadian Aboriginal communities) for its interpretive depth as well as its historical data.

Part of the production of “stardom,” the accounts often feature achievements and awards as well as responses to specific songs, concerts, or recordings (including, for instance, important interview material on such things as the ban on Buffy Sainte-Marie’s antiwar song “Universal Soldier”). The worlds of scholars and journalists, however, are hardly discrete, and close attention to the role that academics play in the global industry is an important topic that exceeds the bounds of this survey. The distinctive styles of self-narration and the ways that life and expressive culture (including song) are integrated in such narratives are of special significance.
