Awarding winning Cree artist Lonechild’s puts pictures to award winning author Wiebe’s story. I like the indigenous contribution here more so than Bouchard’s Qu’Appelle that was painted by Lonechild but written by Bouchard who allegedly is not Metis.

Wiebe writes this book as a non-Indigenous creator but the collaboration with Lonechild is authentic in my opinion. The books teeters on cultural appropriation but passes the test.

He did not speak English until age six since Mennonites at that time customarily spoke Low German at home and standard German at Church. He attended the small school three miles from his farm and the Spee ...more
