It’s a Mitig! is Bridget George’s first book. She is an Anishinaabe author-illustrator and graphic designer raised on the Kettle and Stony Point First Nation in Ontario. It’s a Mitig! guides young readers through the forest while introducing them to Ojibwe words for nature. From sunup to sundown, encounter an amik playing with sticks and swimming in the river, a prickly gaag hiding in the bushes and a big, bark-covered mitig.
One Drum: Stories and Ceremonies for a Planet by Richard Wagamese, Ojibway, and from the Wabaseemoong First Nation, was penned by Richard Wagamese and minimally edited by his publisher. In One Drum, Richard Wagamese finished his interpretation of the first three foundational teachings of the Seven Grandfathers Teachings: humility, courage, and respect. His interpretation of love, honesty, truth and wisdom will forever remain a mystery. These seven fundamental Anishinawbe truths in the Ojibway tradition recognize the principles required to live a good life, in a good way.
