Description

Dakota Dibaataanan Gchi-Kwiinwinan is the Ojibwe language translation of Dakota Talks about Treaties published by the Union of Ontario Indians especially for Ojibwe language learners. This 8-page illustrated resource about the importance of treaties is designed for Indigenous students as well as non-Indigenous readers. Told from Dakota's perspective the book begins as Dakota gives a speech to her classmates. She recounts her family's trip to a celebration of the Treaty of Niagara in Niagara Falls. This is where Dakota saw wampum belts and heard speeches about the history of this treaty. She also explained to her class that the treaties are living agreements and sacred promises. The final page provides a few suggestions for teachers who explain to students that we are all treaty people. Simple sentences, colour illustrations and large font make this an excellent student resource about treaties and wampum for primary and junior level readers. Highly recommended.
