Description

Canadian Aboriginal Art And Culture, Algonquin is one of the titles in Smartbook Media’s series, Canadian Aboriginal Art and Culture, published in 2019. Each title in this series provides information about First Nations, Inuit or Metis and is designed for grades five and six. Author Heather Kissock explains how the Algonquin have lived in the Ottawa Valley moving to this area from the Atlantic coast at least 600 years ago. The book contains 13 short chapters covering the following topics: the Algonquin people, their homes, communities, clothing, and food. This is followed by tools, weapons and defense. Iroquois religion, ceremonies, and celebrations leads into music and dance, language and storytelling, art and body painting. The final chapters include a timeline from 1400AD to the present and approaches to studying pictographs. There is a quiz with 10 questions, keywords, and an index. Each chapter in the 32-page book consists of photographs and text. Colour photographs assist students in understanding the Algonquin as contemporary members of today’s society. The unique feature of this series is the accessible website (Lightbox) dedicated to each title including embedded videos, slideshow, child-safe weblinks, and the book’s complete text in audio.
