Treaty Tales 3 volume set contains Treaty Tales Volume One The Handshake and the Pipe; Treaty Tales Volume Two The Friendship; and Treaty Tales Volume Three We Are All Treaty People produced by Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre. A young girl Neepin and her grandmother (Kookoo) travel around their community Lynx Creek First Nation and grandmother introduces the girl to key people of their First Nation. Grandmother shows the girl how a young person should greet people with a handshake. During these visits the girl learns about her community's history and grandmother introduces ideas about respect for others, and how we all must honour agreements. The Friendship title explains the key concepts of treaties in a picture book format. Grandmother and granddaughter are making bannock and during the baking process grandmother tells the history of First Nations and their friendship with the settlers. Grandmother explains how treaties were signed with newcomers and how First Nations agreed to share the land. In colour illustrations and simple text the book offers elementary level students a resource about how all students are considered to be treaty people. Ideal resource for social studies in elementary grades. Highly recommended.
