People of the Land Legends of the Four Host First Nations
Format: Hardcover
Grade Levels: 4; 5; 6; 7; 8; 9;

Contributions by: Aaron Nelson-Moody, Debbie Sparrow, Deborah Jacobs, Gary Fiegehen, Johnny Abraham, and Zach George

The sacred legends of the four host First Nations, the Lil'wat, Musqueam, Squamish and Tsleil-Waututh, have been passed down from generation to generation through the Elders and are integral to the teachings and oral traditions of First Nations peoples. These stories link people to the land and to each other and pass on traditional knowledge and history. For the first time, these sacred teachings are collected in an anthology of stories willingly shared by the respected storytellers of each nation. These legends,which range from creation stories to naming stories,add to our knowledge of ourselves and each other.

Four maps accompany numerous photos of the lands of the Lil'Wat, Tsleil-Waututh, Musqueam and Squamish nations. In addition, works of art by four First Nations artists, Johnny Abraham, Glenn George, Zach George and Aaron Nelson-Moody, appear in this collection. The art, which is beautifully rendered in wood, acrylic, and oil, captures the ancestral voices of these legends and pays tribute to each nation.

Spirit of the White Bison
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Indigenous;
Grade Levels: 5; 6; 7; 8; 9;

The Great Plains of North America was once home to great herds of bison. The Aboriginal people who lived there revered them and relied on them for food, clothing, and shelter. Into one of these great herds, Little White Buffalo was born in the 19th century. In this heartfelt story, she retells her life - a life that coincides with the devastation of the bison, destroyed by hunters and the coming of the railway.
