Kamik An Inuit Puppy Story
Authors:
Donald Uluadluak
Artists:
Qin Leng
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Inuit;

When Jake finally gets a puppy to call his own, all he can think about is the fast, strong sled dog that his puppy will become. But Kamik is far from an obedient sled dog. He won’t listen, he tracks mud all over the house, and he’s a lot more work than Jake ever thought a puppy could be! But after a visit with his grandfather, who raised many puppies of his own while living out on the land, Jake learns that Inuit have been raising puppies just like Kamik to be obedient, resourceful, helpful sled dogs for generations.

Inspired by the real-life recollections of an elder from Arviat, Nunavut, this book lovingly recreates the traditional dog-rearing practices that prevailed when Inuit relied on dogs for transportation and survival.

"This book is an excellent school resource for introducing children to Indigenous worldviews. It is comprised of 18 story packages which may be used as teaching tools in the classroom. The stories are divided by subject nature and include one introduction story, two stories about creation, one about celebration, thanksgiving and stewardship, eight about flowers and fruits, seeds and spores, five about survival, and one about healing our relations. Each traditional story acknowledges the Native North American cultures in which the story originated.

The stories are accompanied by beautiful black and white ink drawings, artistically representing the events and characters in each story.

The discussion prompts relate the story to First Nations traditional worldviews and emphasize mankind’s interconnection with the natural world. Following the discussion prompts, there is a list of questions to encourage student reflection. Some of the questions are focussed more on story comprehension while others encourage children to reflect on the greater meaning of the story and how it relates to their daily life.... Keepers of the Earth offers suggestions for activities to solidify and expand the learning of the story. Activity suggestions include field trips, demonstrations, experimentationand further discussion. Each story is accompanied by at least one activity with recommendations as to which age group tocater the activityto. While most of the activities seem directed at grades 3-8, there are many activities that could suit the needs of older or younger children with little or no modification." - Rachel Yaroshuk, CM Magazine

Kipawa Deux sangs
Authors:
Daniel Gagné
Format: Paperback
Text Content Territories: Métis;

Une rencontre fortuite en 1948, improbable au coeur des denses forêts du Bas-Témiscaningue, scelle à jamais le destin de deux êtres que rien n'avait préparés à réunir. Tom, un étudiant en entomologie forestière, et Suzanne, une jeune métisse au coeur farouche. Ils sont loin de se douter que leur sort est lié à celui d'un tout petit insecte qui pourrait livrer bataille à la mouche à scie de l'épinette, échappée d'Europe, et qui ravage les forêts de l'immense territoire du Kipawa. Mais pour lui donner la chance d'agir, une grande compagnie forestière doit renoncer aux méthodes classiques de lutte contre les insectes et se mettre à l'écoute du petit peuple d'eau, les Algonquins qui habitent le pays depuis des milliers d'années. Le secret que tentent de percer les entomologistes pourra-t-il remonterjusqu'à la surface, au milieu des remous et des obstacles qui se dressent sur le parcours hésitant de Tom et Suzanne ? En toile de fond, tout le drame de la vie métisse, partagée entre deux mondes, deux sangs, deux contradictions. Mais ne sommes-nous pas tous un peu métis sous le couvert des apparences?

Daniel Gagné est né à Rouyn-Noranda, en Abitibi. Très tôt, il s'est intéressé aux langues amérindiennes, plus particulièrement l'algonquin, qu'il a tenté d'apprivoiser lors de ses séjours dans divers campements et lieux de rassemblement d'été de ce peuple. Il signe ici son premier roman pour ados et adulte.
