La plus belle Création de Corbeau
Author: David Bouchard
Format: Hardcover
, 2011
  • Corbeau rêva… et créa les Quatre-pattes, les Ailés, les Rampants.
    Il continua à rêver… à rêver… et il créa sa plus belle oeuvre jamais réalisée.

    Gaagaagi gii-pawaajige ogii-pawaanaa’ gaa-niiyogaadenid,
    gaa-bimisewaad, gaa-bimoodewaad. Geyaabigo gii-pawaajige …
    Gii-pawaajige ezhi-mino-ozhiitaad …

    Il y a autant de versions de la Création que de peuples des Premières nations en Amérique du Nord. L’histoire qui suit est le fruit d’un rêve de David Bouchard, auteur métis membre de l’Ordre du Canada. Dans la pure tradition des Métis et de leur art du conte, David Bouchard initie le lecteur au monde du Ciel, au peuple de la Terre, au mythe du Corbeau, à l’Île de la Tortue, à l’apparition des Deux-pattes (les humains).

    Comme dans tous ses ouvrages qui ont reçu prix et récompenses et réuni des artistes autochtones tels que Allan Sapp, Dennis Weber, Michael Lonechild, Buffy Sainte-Marie et Susan Aglukark, David Bouchard joue un rôle de rassembleur en s’entourant une nouvelle fois d’artistes et de musiciens reconnus pour leur excellence.
    Le lecteur découvrira la passion et le talent de la peintre cherokee Brigitte Lopez et de la chanteuse lumbee Jana Mashonee. Bien au-delà de l’oeuvre littéraire, de la fierté et de la culture d’un peuple, ce livre proclame la complémentarité et l’extrême richesse de l’expression artistique des Premières nations au niveau des mots, de l’image et du son.

The Drum Calls Softly

  • Canadian Children''s Book Centre Our Choice, 2009

    BolognaRagazzi Award Mention book, 2010

    What the Bologna jury said:
    "The joyful yet complex style of Jim Poitras is the vehicle for an enjoyable lesson in cultural anthropology. The clear contours of the foreground figures dialogue effortlessly with the landscapes in the background whose colourful, complex and material quality is rendered almost tangible. This novel illustration technique is particularly suited as a book for children since it highlights to great effect how man's customs, lifestyles and traditions take on significance only when seen against the backdrop of the skies, hills, rivers and natural world that gave rise to them.

    Translation and music by Northern Cree
    Have you danced the round dance yet?
    Of course you have-you're in my dream.
