The First Flute, Whowhoahyahzo Tohkohya is a new picture book collaboration from Métis storyteller David Bouchard and New Zealand illustrator Don Oelze. This book is a retelling of a traditional Dakota story about names and the origin of the first flute. David Bouchard tells the story of a young man given the name Dancing Raven. He was a dancer - the best from all the nations. But the other men and boys in his village don't appreciate Dancing Raven's talent - hunting, fishing and tracking are the truly important talents. Dancing Raven must prove to his village the importance of his song.
