Description

Adventures of Rabbit and Bear Paws: The Sugar Bush is a graphic novel based on the characters in the comic strip that appears in Anishinabek News. Artist Chad Solomon, grandson of respected Ojibwe Elder and activist Art Solomon, created two Ojibwe brothers known as Rabbit and Bear Paws. With this inaugural 32-page comic, Rabbit and Pear Paws are key players in an 18th century North American setting. The artist places the two characters in Ontario where they come into contact with English soldiers on route to Niagara. Throughout their adventures readers are introduced to stories featuring Nanaboozhoo, the Trickster. Chad Solomon draws on the Ojibwe Seven Grandfathers Teachings for the core of the story. This edition draws on the teaching Mnaadendmowin or Respect. This is a unique resource that may interest reluctant readers in finding out about Ojibwe history and teachings. Intermediate Spring 2012
