Posters: The Six Cedar Trees Mini Poster Set (Set of six)

Country of Origin: Canada

This set of six Mini Posters features the core competencies, each represented by an animal (bear, beaver, orca, raven, salmon and wolf).

Please note: Each animal in this story represents one of the BC Core Competencies. The characteristics and habits have been determined by the author and do not reflect any group of Indigenous peoples. Celestine Aleck, the illustrator, and Terri Mack, the publisher, both reflected and conversed on this prior to publication in that the characteristics and habits were deemed as that of anyone describing these animals from a mainstream perspective, not a Traditional Clan or Totem perspective.
