Description

Elder Dr. Albert D. Marshall is from the Moose Clan of the Mi'kmaw Nation, Eskasoni First Nation in Unama'ki-Cape Breton, Nova Scotia. A fluent speaker of Mi'kmaw, he has brought forth the concept of Etuaptmumk / Two-Eyed Seeing which honors the strengths of both Indigenous and non-Indigenous knowledges and ways of knowing for the benefit of all. Louise Zimanyi is a mother, professor, researcher, sea turtle lover. Emily Kewageshig, of Saugeen First Nation, is an Anishnaabe artist and visual storyteller whose work captures the interconnection of life forms using both traditional and contemporary materials and methods. She creates artwork that highlights Indigenous Knowledge and culture.

A poetic, joyful celebration of the Lands and Waters as Spring unfolds: we watch for Robin's return, listen for Frog's croaking, and wonder at Maple Tree's Gift of Sap. Grounded in Etuaptmumk, also known as Two-Eyed Seeing, the Gift of Multiple Perspectives, and the Mi’kmaw concept of Netukulimk, meaning to protect Mother Earth for the Ancestors, present, and future generations, 'Walking Together' nurtures respectful, reciprocal, responsible relationships with the Land and Water, Plant-life, Animals and Other-Than-Human Beings for the benefit of all. This innovative picture book introduces readers to the concept of Etuaptmumk—or Two-Eyed Seeing in the Mi’kmaq language—as we follow a group of young children connecting to nature as their Teacher.
