Description

Written by Sally Williams, Kwakwaka'wakw (Kwakiutl), Gwawaenuk, and illustrated by Lou-ann Neel, Kwakwaka'wakw (Kwakiutl).

The teachings–ways of knowing–of our Kwakwaka’wakw (kwok-wok-ya-wokw) noble ancestors are ancient beliefs and values. We become stronger as we learn and practise our culture. What is one thing that you practise that makes you a stronger person?
