Description

Adventures of Rabbit and Bear Paws: The Voyageurs is a graphic novel based on the characters in the comic strip that appears in Anishinabek News. Artist Chad Solomon, grandson of respected Ojibwe Elder and activist Art Solomon, created two Ojibwe brothers known as Rabbit and Bear Paws. With this second volume in the series, the authors and illustrator offer a humourous story that features a lacrosse game, an encounter with fur traders, a flying canoe, and Mohawk characters. There is a cameo appearance by a Mohawk youth, Tekayentine:ka (Thayendanegea or Joseph Brant). Chad Solomon draws on the Ojibwe Seven Grandfathers Teachings for the core of the story. This edition draws on the teaching Aakdehewin or Bravery. This is a unique resource that may interest reluctant readers in finding out about Ojibwe history and teachings. Intermediate Spring 2012
