In this companion to Seven Eyes, Seven Legs, sometimes the words are Tsonakwa’s, sometimes they belong to the spirits. “The first time I saw a human,” Caribou Man relates, “he frightened me…Later, when I became accustomed to him, I learned a lot about his world….The great secret in the world of men is that the world of spirits exists. The great secret in the world of spirits is that there is no secret.” The eyes of younger and older readers will go from word to sculpture and back again. The word describes the art; the art illuminates the word.
