Description

By author Judith M. Doucette, a proud member of the Qalipu First Nation. Illustrated by Rebecca Reid.

After moving from an all-French Indigenous community to the English community of St. George’s when he was a little boy, Poppa's life as a young man was very sad. He was treated badly by his schoolteachers and some other children in the town.

Years later, when his grandson wants to bring him into school to play his drum for the class, Poppa is nervous but goes anyway. He is relieved to see he is welcomed and even encouraged to share his knowledge of the traditions and customs of his Mi’kmaw culture.
