Description

The Train is written by Jodie Callaghan, a Mi’gmaq educator from Listuguj First Nation in Gespegewa’gi near Quebec. The Train is illustrated by Georgia Lesley. This is story of a young girl, Ashley who is slowly walking back from school when she meets her Uncle. He is sad. He tells Ashley his story of first going to residential school and the important lesson of knowing where you come from. This story is colourfully illustrated yet invokes the sadness that Ashley and her Uncle feel. It is also descriptive with a short glossary of Mig’maq words. The Train is the winner of the Second Story Press Indigenous Writing Contest.
