Nos Histoires Sont Vivantes (Land Is Our Storybook) (Hardcover)
Join Tlicho young people, Shelinda, Forest, and Bradley, as they learn about making dry-fish, bows and arrows, and birch-bark baskets; the practices of old-time healers; as well as the sacred stories that tell the history of the Tlicho people. Some of the stories related in this book have never been written down before - versions of sacred stories are a gift to young readers across Canada, to be used wisely.
The Tlicho Nation was the first in the Northwest Territories to gain self-government. With Elders such as Philip and Elizabeth passing along their traditional wisdom to the young, as well as knowledge gained since the Tlicho first encountered European peoples, the Tlicho are showing how they are, strong like two people.
