Available in paperback only.  Bernelda Wheeler (Cree/Ojibwe/Métis),  Where Did You Get Your Moccasins? 1986, b/w illustrations by Herman Bekkering.

It’s circle time, and in answer to his classmates’ questions about his moccasins, a child describes in detail how his grandmother made them: “By washing and scraping and pulling and smoking a deer hide, my Kookum made the leather. And from the leather she made my moccasins for me.” As with I Can't Have Bannock, each page builds on the previous one, and children will like the unexpected (for some) ending.
