A Celebration of the People of Mi'kma'ki
by Julie Pellissier-Lush, Robin Grant and James Bentley
The newest installment in the celebrated illustrated series about Amazing Atlantic Canadians, featuring incredible Indigenous people.
Delve into the uplifting stories of the people of Mi’kma’ki in this full-colour illustrated book. Meet a devoted water protector, learn about a teen determined to shed light on the tragic history of Residential Schools, and discover poets who use words to explore and champion the rich Mi’kmaw culture. From Grand Chief Gabriele Sylliboy and Elder Dorene Bernard to Rebecca Thomas and Landyn Toney, all of these amazing people call Mi’kma’ki (a territory that includes New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Nova Scotia, and parts of Newfoundland, Quebec, and Maine) home.
With dozens of profiles featuring artists, athletes, entrepreneurs, scientists, and more — both historical and present-day, from kids to Elders — Julie Pellissier-Lush and Robin Grant celebrate the many brilliant achievements of the Mi’kmaq.
Includes original colour illustrations by James Bentley, informative sidebars, a map of Mi’kmaw territories, a history of Mi’kma’ki , an index, and a glossary.
