A Mishomis Book: A History-Coloring Book of the Ojibway Indians is the set of five colouring books about Ojibway traditional teachings written for children. Edward Benton Banai is the Ojibway teacher and spiritual leader who founded the Red School House, an alternative school for Native American students in St. Paul, Minnesota. His goal in writing this set of Mishomis colouring books was to provide students with an accurate account of Ojibway culture, history, and worldview based on the oral teachings. The first book, The Ojibway Creation Story, retells with the Ojibway creation story and how first man came to earth. The second book, Original Man Walks the Earth, tells how Original Man set about identifying the various plants, animals, and places on earth. He gave them names and these Ojibway terms are provided in the text. The third book, Original Man and his Grandmother Nokomis, tells how Original Man learned several teachings from Nokomis. Book four, The Earth's First People, continues the story how Original Man travelled the earth in search of his mother, father, and brother. Several teaching about sweetgrass, tobacco, and medicines are included in this book that covers the establishment of families and clans. The final book, The Great Flood, recounts the traditional story about how Turtle Island came to be. This series is an excellent introduction to the Ojibway view of history, as well as an explanation of how the world came to be. While the title indicates a set of colouring books for younger children, the individual books contain a substantial amount of text as well as activities. Simple line drawings on every other page provide illustrations for the text. This collection is recommended for primary students as well as those in grade 4 to 6.
