Description

Siha Tooskin Knows the Sacred Eagle Feather 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 Knows the Sacred Eagle Feather is the story of how, for as long as Paul could remember, there were eagle feathers around him…but how had they come to be in all of those places in his life? Paul Wahasaypa—Siha Tooskin—can find these feathers in Ade’s truck, on the dream catcher above his bed, on his Uncle Lenard’s bustle, and in with the smudge bowls in all of his relatives’ homes. Paul already knows that the eagle is important because of the way that his family respects and cares for eagle feathers. Now he’s old enough for the teachings of where the feathers come from and why they are so sacred. Walk with Paul and Mitoshin (his grandfather) so you too will understand the teaching of the sacred eagle feather. The Siha Tooskin Knows series uses vivid narratives and dazzling illustrations in contemporary settings to share stories about an 11-year-old Nakota boy.
