Description

Illustrated by Loretta Gould, a Mi'kmaw painter and quilter who loves bright, beautiful colours. A self-taught artist, she grew up in Waycobah First Nation and started painting in earnest a decade ago. With text by Cathy LeBlanc, a member of Acadia First Nation and a graduate of St. Thomas University. She is a Mi’kmaw cultural interpreter and Student Support Worker for Indigenous and African Nova Scotian youth; and David Chapman, a physicist.

This board book presents the months of the Mi’kmaw lunar calendar to very young children and their parents. Mi’kmaw artist Loretta Gould’s art illustrates each of the 12 Mi’kmaw moons through the changing seasons in Mi’kma’ki. Each month is named after events in the natural world – from Snow Blinding Time through Frogs Croaking Time and Berry Ripening Time. Each month’s illustration is accompanied by its name in Mi’kmaw and English.

Loretta Gould’s art, first published in Mi’kmaw Moons: The Seasons in Mi’kma’ki has won high praise from reviewers, and the book has received numerous awards. This book contains 12 full-colour paintings.
