Stories of Robin Town: #5 The House of the Robin Chief
Format: Paperback
  • This is the fifth book in the series Stories of Robin Town.

    This series is the result of a community-based initiative started in 2005 by Gila Kyew Nluulk Head Start and Daycare Manager Lillian Samson. The goal of the initiative was to create educational books for children at the daycare which would teach them about the heritage and values of their community and their ancestors. Lillian asked Jim McDonald to write these children's stories based upon the history of the community using archival stories about Robin Town, the ancestral community of the Kitsumkalum people. Community member Gerald Samson was later asked to contribute the artwork for the series. The Gila Kyew Nluulk Heritage Project was initiated in 2008 with the help of Success by 6 Northwest and their ongoing support has allowed us to produce this series of books. In 2010, we formed an important partnership with the Department of Aboriginal Education of Coast Mountains School District 82, ensuring the successful completion of this series. These books have been created for young children of Kitsumkalum descent with the intention of fostering pride and strength through knowledge and learning. It is hoped that they will create important connections for the children both within the community of Kitsumkalum and between communities in the Northwest of British Columbia.
