Isla’s New Drum is written and illustrated by Herbert Shane Hartman, a member of the Beaver or Lhts'umusuyoo Clan from the Nak'azdli Whut'en First Nation. In this story, Isla has been given a new drum that she loves dearly but she doesn’t have a song to sing to her new drumbeat. She decides to ask some forest friends to help her make a new song. Each friend offers Isla what they can, showing true generosity. Each friend also offers a message that is important to keeping Mother Earth healthy and strong. In return, Isla plays her drum for each friend as she gives back what she can. Isla discovers so much more than her new song! The Dakelh (Carrier) words included in this book were referenced from The Central Carrier Bilingual Dictionary.
