JUVENILE NONFICTION / People & Places / Indigenous Peoples of Turtle Island / Teachings & Traditions
It's been said when teachings are passed down from one generation to the next, good things can happen. Language is learned, knowledge is shared and culture is practiced. In this story of language preservation, Author/Illustrator and Anishnaabemowin language teacher Juliana Armstrong illuminates a number of Anishnaabemowin words along with their cultural connections, passed down from her Ojibway ancestors. Knowing our culture means knowing who we are. When we know who we are, we can walk in a good way.

Juliana Armstrong, a Teacher of Anishnaabemowin Language & Culture first became an artist after growing up watching her Mother and Gokmis crafting. The natural world around her as well as carrying her children during pregnancy have inspired most of her work. With great appreciation for the Ojibway Culture and Language it is important for her to share her gifts such as art. Raised on Christian Island, she is a member of and resides in Nipissing First Nation, Ontario.
