Little Butterfly Girl: An Indian Residential School Story is a picture book produced by the Union of Ontario Indians based on an original account by Jenny Restoule-Mallozzi. With original colour illustrations by Donald Chretien, this story recounts the experiences of an Ojibwe child forced to attend residential school.  The tragic account is brought full-circle when Mary begins her healing journey with encouragement from her family.  Her name, Little Butterfly Girl, is reclaimed along with her language and traditional spirituality.  This account will appeal to adult literacy learners as well as junior and intermediate level students.
