Description

Siha Tooskin Knows the Offering of Tobacco 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 Siha Tooskin Knows the Offering of Tobacco we realize that we can learn many things from the stars, the plants, the animals, and Ena Makoochay (Mother Earth) herself. But how do we show gratitude for the gifts we receive? Paul Wahasaypa—Siha Tooskin—knows from the teachings of his family how important it is to always give back. Whether we are taking berries or plants from the earth, eggs from a duck’s nest, or knowledge from a learned person, it is so important to offer a gift back to show honour and appreciation. Join Paul and his teacher Ms. Baxter to find out what they discover about the protocol of offering the tobacco plant. The Siha Tooskin Knows series uses vivid narratives and dazzling illustrations in contemporary settings to share stories about an 11-year-old Nakota boy.
