Description

The Gift Is in the Making retells previously published Anishinaabeg stories, bringing to life Anishinaabeg values and teachings to a new generation. Readers are immersed in a world where all genders are respected, the tiniest being has influence in the world, and unconditional love binds families and communities to each other and to their homeland. Sprinkled with gentle humour and the Anishinaabe language, this collection of stories speaks to children and adults alike, and reminds us of the timelessness of stories that touch the heart.

Editorial Review

This was an absolutely exquisite book...sprinkled about with Nishnaabemowin so by the end of the book, you’ll be newly familiar with a number of beautiful words...This felt like a book of sacred texts.
