Description

Siha Tooskin Knows the Nature of Life is part of the Siha Tooskin Knows early chapter book series by Charlene Bearhead, Wilson Bearhead, a Nakota Elder and Wabamun Lake First Nation community member in central Alberta (Treaty 6 territory) and the recent recipient of the Canadian Teachers’ Federation Indigenous Elder Award; and illustrated by Chloe Bluebird Mustooch, of Alexis Nakoda Sioux Nation of Northern Alberta. Siha Tooskin (Paul Wahasaypa) knows that Ena Makoochay (Mother Earth) gives us many things. On this compelling nature journey with Ena (his mom), we learn how strength, generosity, kindness, and humility are all shown to us by grandfather rocks, towering trees, four-legged ones, and winged ones, reminding us of the part we have to play in this amazing creation. Join Paul and Ena as they experience the beautiful nature of life and question what rocks, grass, trees, and birds can possibly teach human beings. The Siha Tooskin Knows series uses vivid narratives and dazzling illustrations in contemporary settings to share stories about an 11-year-old Nakota boy.
