Whenever Grandma gets that “special feeling,” the children know they're about to pile into the van, “get out into nature,” and get a lesson about how First Nations peoples used to live in the old days; and Grandma knows that the children need to be able to experience what she wants to talk to them about. As she passes on this knowledge to the children, she also passes on cultural history about how respect was and continues to be shown to the plants—how they are acknowledged for their contributions and assured they will not be over-harvested.

 

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.
