$18.00 USD

“waniskā. wāpan,” mosōm says. “Wake up. It’s morning, little one. You, me, and kohkom are going for a boat ride for the day.” And that is exactly what they do in this quiet little book that celebrates traditional life in modern times. Held warmly in his kohkom’s arms, little Luke watches ducks, pelicans and cormorants on the way to Seagull Island, where the family collects eggs for a shore lunch and to share later with Auntie at home. Born at Fox Point, mistahi-sākahikanihk, Myles Hector Charles is a Woodland Cree Elder and artist who paints what he loves about life in the North. Miriam Körner is a writer and illustrator who lives with her sled dogs near mistahi-sākahikanihk in northern Saskatchewan.
