What lessons can we learn from our Pacific Northwest Coast animals? This is the question Eagle explores as he settles in a tall grove of cedar trees nestled in the corner of a school playground. The Six Cedar Trees allows readers to understand the characteristics and habits of six Pacific Northwest Coast animals and how these animals can help them develop a deeper understanding of themselves.

Educator Information 
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. The artwork in this book, however, is Indigenous artwork from an Indigenous artist; therefore, the Authentic Indigenous Artwork label is shown.

Beautifully illustrated animals by Coast Salish artist/author Celestine Aleck.

Cultural edits for the animal characteristics by Celestine Aleck and Terri Mack. 

Additional Information
The Six Cedar Trees is adapted from The Four Stones, an original story by Laurie Bayly, a teacher and counsellor with the Greater Victoria School District. Bayly’s story is based on SD61’s Aboriginal Enhancement Agreement, The Spirit of Alliances.
