1. Mouse Celebrates the Winter Solstice
Synopsis: 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.

Toolbox For Change
LVI Project Launch – Toolbox for Change: A Local Perspective on Indigenous Culture
April/22/16

This post is a copy of the original press release for the 2016 LVI project, Toolbox for Change: A Local Perspective on Indigenous Culture:

Mid-Island Manifestors with Leadership Vancouver Island presents:

Toolbox for Change: A Local Perspective on Indigenous Culture

Toolbox for Change: A Local Perspective on Indigenous Culture with art work commissioned by Coast Salish Artist Joel Good, is a travelling library that will circulate within the Nanaimo business community. The intent of Toolbox for Change is to be displayed in local business lobbies or break rooms for staff and clients alike to peruse at their leisure. The most significant crest for this project is the Beaver. The Beaver is industrious and it yields results, much like the members of the business community who are supporting this project.

Two travelling libraries will circulate through Nanaimo’s businesses community starting May of 2016 and will be available to sign out through the Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre. This project was made possible through the generous financial support of Western Forest Products.

Terri Mack, owner of Strong Nations bookstore – one of the largest indigenous bookstores in North America – has been an integral supporter for ideas and content selecting an assortment of books from general awareness to graphic novels. The project was initiated and developed by a team of students: Meaghan Douglas, Nic Pzrada, Will Scott, Tara Plett, Brenda Krastel and Kait Burgan all currently enrolled in Leadership Vancouver Island who chose Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre as Partner and Caretaker of “Toolbox for Change”. They give a big thanks to Nanaimo Chamber of Commerce for assisting in getting the message out.

“The project has really taken off,” says Chris Beaton of the Nanaimo Aboriginal Centre. “The response to the project has been extremely positive. This shows there is most definitely a need for an initiative like this in the community and that the ‘Toolbox for Change’ will make a difference by getting information about Indigenous Culture into people’s hands in a unique and relaxed way.”

“We are completely blown away by the enthusiasm this project has received,” says Tara Plett, team member. “While the scope of our involvement ends when we graduate from Leadership Vancouver Island in June, we have hopes that the project will continue to grow and develop. It’s become clear to us that there is a want and a need for tools like this not just in our community but across Canada.”

Leadership Vancouver Island is a community –focused, grassroots leadership development program that aims to inspire and build capacity of outstanding leadership, learning and service. It follows the philosophy of “Leading Self. Leading Others. Leading Community.”
