Un Cantique Autochtone is the French edition of An Aboriginal Carol, a recent release from Red Deer Press that truly represents the collaboration of Métis author David Bouchard, Inuit musician Susan Aglukark, and Ojibwe artist Moses Beaver. Each artist brings their unique talents to a newly revised version of the Huron Carol. Based on the original Jesus ahatonhia written by Jean de Brebeuf, this picture book contains a CD with the readings of the carol in English and Inuktitut as well as the song performed in Inuktitut by Susan Aglukark. Susan also translated the original carol from English to Inuktitut. The French translation was provided by Claire Jobidon and David Bouchard. The Woodland style artwork by Moses Beaver compliments the song poem. In the introductory notes author David Bouchard states that according to First Nations knowledge, Jesus Christ first appeared in North America (Turtle Island) as the Iroquois Peacemaker who is responsible for the Great Law of Peace. This makes an excellent read-aloud book for children and adults. Ideal for the Christmas season. The English edition of this title is selected as a recommended title in the 2009 First Nations Libraries Community Reads program.
