Description

Jujijk: Mi'kmaw Insects is a written by the Tripartite Forum Culture and Heritage Education Committee and includes representatives from Mi'kmaw communities. This book is illustrated by Gerald Gloade (Mi'kmaw). The English language is noun-based, referring to people, places, and things. Jujijk, an illustrated bilingual guide to bugs and insects in Atlantic Canada, showcases the beautiful verb-based Mi’kmaw language. Featuring vibrant artwork and concise, fascinating descriptions, Jujijk will have you searching out “the one that looks like a little owl” (moth) and “the one that sings before she bites you” (mosquito). Created to promote and preserve the Mi’kmaw language, this book includes a pronunciation guide, a Mi’kmaw-English matching game, and an abridged version of the Smith-Francis orthography.
