Treaty Tales 1: The Handshake and the Pipe is volume one in the treaty trilogy produced by educators at Manitoba First Nations Education Resource Centre for students in Manitoba. 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. Students will learn about the importance of stories and how they can tell us about our history, our past and present situation. The handshake and passing the pipe are important symbols for First Nations. This book is ideal for primary and junior level students learning about the importance of treaties today. Highly Recommended.
