Author: Debora Abood
Format: Paperback
  • The second book in the Precious and Sacred Series is finally here!

    I Know I Am Precious and Sacred follows a conversation between a child and loving grandfather as they talk about what the words “precious” and “sacred” mean. These culturally integral concepts are explained in simple, practical terms, so that Little Ones may recognize how they affect relationships in families and communities.

    I Know I Am Precious And Sacred is a soft-cover children’s book, geared towards readers and listeners ages 5 to 10 years old, but holds out important truths for their adults as well. The book was printed locally by Hemlock Printers, Ltd, a family-owned business, recognized and awarded in their industry for excellence in both quality and environmental sustainability.

    We are pleased to once again partner with Victoria Native Friendship Centre on this fantastic resource for social, cultural and educational organizations who want to explore the richness of First Nation ancestral teachings on the value of children.

Mouse Celebrates the Winter Solstice
Author: Terri Mack
Traditional Territory: Kwakwaka'wakw
Format: Paperback
  • It is winter. The land lies still, quiet and stark beneath a blanket of snow. The tiny footprints of a mouse can be seen in the light of the moon.

    "Wrapped in the quiet, and there in the bleak, there stood a wise mouse, preparing to speak."

    The words that mouse chose were from many years past. She spoke them into the cold night air. So begins the enchanting story of a very special Winter Solstice celebration.

    Kwakwaka’wakw author Terri Mack and Tsimshian artist Bill Helin have collaborated to bring us this story of strength, friendship and celebration. The lyrical text and engaging illustrations will appeal to readers of all ages.

    Author's note:

    I spent a year writing and rewriting this poem to be sure to convey the message clearly to my audience. It was important to me that the poem reflect the importance of us all joining together to find the sacredness in celebration, the joy of belonging within a greater community and the voice of determination inside of each of us. Inspired by Indigenous Peoples rising, healing and joining together I hope that this poem inspires our youth to be strong and determined in all their future goals.
