Description

La Terre me parle : Un livre sur les saisons / This Is How I Know: A Book about the Seasons, is written by Brittany Luby, of Anishinaabe descent and raised on Treaty 3 Territory; and Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley, Ojibwe Woodland artist and member of Wasauksing First Nation. In, La Terre me parle, an Anishinaabe child and her grandmother take pleasure in the familiar sights that each new season brings. This lyrical, bilingual story-poem is written in Ojibwe and French. We accompany them through warm summer days full of wildflowers, bees and blueberries, then fall, when bears feast before hibernation and forest mushrooms are ripe for harvest. Winter mornings begin in darkness as deer, mice and other animals search for food, while spring brings green shoots poking through melting snow and the chirping of peepers. Brittany Luby and Joshua Mangeshig Pawis-Steckley have created a book inspired by childhood memories of time spent with Knowledge Keepers, observing and living in relationship in the place they call home — the northern reaches of Anishinaabewaking, around the Great Lakes.
