A story that instills a sense of pride in the Métis culture, and deals with issues of overcoming low self-esteem.

 



Jenneli is a shy young girl who feels that she is nothing special, until she learns about the Métis Red River Jig from her Grandma Lucee. Jenneli loved to have fun with Grandma Lucee doing the Red River Jig, until one day, Grandma Lucee entered Jenneli into a jigging contest at the Lakeside Fair. Jenneli was both horrified and excited, but with Grandma Lucee’s encouragement, love and support, Jenneli placed her self-doubts and fears aside to dance in the contest. Jenneli’s Dance is a story that instills a sense of pride in the Métis culture, and deals with issues of overcoming low self-esteem.

Jenneli's Dance is one of Oyate's new favorites. The characters populating Chris Auchter's drawings are downright love-able!
