These stories have been captivating to me and my children (aged 4 and 9). They are creation stories from the perspective of the first nations people in this region - something we yearn to know and include in our worldview. The pictures are beautiful too and we especially enjoy Chief Lelooska's renditions of the stories on the CD. He really makes them come alive.
