Written at a level that children can understand, this is a deeply-moving spiritual and historical odyssey not “just” for children.

Available in paperback only.  Edward Benton-Banai (Ojibwe), The Mishomis Book: The Voices of the Ojibwe. 1988, b/w illustrations by Joe Liles (Ojibwe).

Mishomis begins with the Creatioin Story, and tells how Original Man came to be on Earth, how he learned his name, how he found his grandmother, how he searched the Earth for his mother and father, and how, as Waynaboozhoo, he became a hero and a teacher for the Ojibwe People. As a child must be guided to grow in understanding, so does Mishomis take the reader from the simplest beginnings to the complexity of meaning of the Midewiwin and Sweat Lodge ceremonies. Written at a level that children can understand, this is a deeply-moving spiritual and historical odyssey not “just” for children.
