Sharing our truths : Tapwe

Beaver, Henry (author.). Willett, Mindy, 1968- (author.). Beaver, Eileen (author.). Macintosh, Tessa, 1952- (photographer.).

Henry and Eileen Beaver live in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories. They are both community leaders, parents, and grandparents. When their daughter, Joline, and grandchildren come for a visit, they teach them about their land and culture. Join the children and learn the protocols for building a tipi, trapping a beaver, laying the grandfather stones for a fire, smudging, and harvesting salt from the Salt Plains in Wood Buffalo National Park. In Cree, tapwe means "it is so" or "the truth." In this, the ninth book in This Land is Our Storybook series, Henry writes, "We can tell you what to do with the truths we share in this book, but we hope that reading our story will help you get to know us a little better so that together we can make this nation a place we can all be proud of."
