Siha Tooskin Knows the Love of the Dance 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 Love of the Dance, it is the thundering drums, rattling hooves, clinking jingles— so come along with Paul, Jeff, and Uncle Lenard to the powwow. Paul Wahasaypa—Siha Tooskin—has invited his friend Jeff to a powwow. It’s Jeff’s very first powwow, and is he ever nervous! What if he says or does the wrong thing? Grass dancers, Fancy Shawl dancers, Chicken dancers—what does it all mean? Follow along as Jeff learns all about the dances and their beautiful traditions. See you at the powwow. The Siha Tooskin Knows series uses vivid narratives and dazzling illustrations in contemporary settings to share stories about an 11-year-old Nakota boy.
