Description

Siha Tooskin Knows the Best Medicine 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. In this book, while antibiotics, bandages, cough syrup, ointment, pills…modern medicine has so much to offer when we become ill, this book questions whether medical science, health, and healing practices are actually modern. When Siha Tooskin—Paul Wahasaypa—finds himself not feeling at all well, he learns that there are answers for him from the healing practices of his own people and from Western medicine. Pay a hospital visit to Paul as he learns more about where “modern medicine” really comes from and how we can all benefit from Indigenous and Western healers as Paul seeks the best medicine for his own wellness.
