            The gathering

            2018

            by Theresa Meuse-Dallien and Art Stevens

            Celebrated Mi'kmaw writer and artist depict a young Mi'kmaw girl's first spiritual gathering (mawiomi) in this vibrant picture book. Alex is attending her first Mi'kmaw spiritual gathering, or mawiomi. Though she is timid at first, older cousin Matthew takes her under his wing. Meeting Elders along the way, they learn about traditional Mi'kmaw culture: the sacred fire, drumming, tanning and moccasin decorating, basket-and canoe-making, and enjoy a Mi'kmaw feast. Most importantly, Alex finds her voice in the talking circle. With contemporary illustrations by renowned artist Leonard Paul, The Gathering is an inclusive story that will educate and entertain Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike.--Provided by publisher
