A collaborative effort between the Victoria Native Friendship Centre and the First Nations Division of the Greater Victoria School District, these little books were written in consultation with First Nations elders, students, parents, and Native advisors in the school district. As a result, these stories of Salish, Kwakwaka'wakw, and Nuu Chah Nulth peoples, published in 1994 and beautifully illustrated with black-and-white line drawings, demonstrate the traditional value of inclusion.

For young readers, this is a deceptively simple and excellent discussion of old-time and modern technology: “Long ago, our people used canoes to hunt, to fish, to gather, and to travel. Today, some of our people still use canoes to hunt, fish, gather and travel. But mostly, we use motor boats, fish boats, trucks, cars or vans, motorbikes, bicycles or planes to hunt, fish, gather or travel.”
