Description & Features+
Who are the Ojibway people, and how did they come to live in the lands of the Great Lake? Let Mishomis, or Grandfather in the Ojibway language, draw you a picture. In this delightful coloring book, the history of the Ojibway unfolds, beginning with the story of creation. As Original Man (some will call him Anishanabe) walks the Earth, giving names to all things, Mishomis draws young readers along with Ojibway lore and wonder, and with pictures asking to be brought to colorful life. The story follows the first five books of The Mishomis Book, telling of the Original Mans grandmother Nokomis, of the Earth?s first people, and of the Great Flood that changed everything. Thank Gitchie Manito for Turtle, on whose back the new world rests! Coloring along with Mishomis?s words, readers will be enchanted to learn the legends and discover the spirit of the Ojibway traditions and way of life.
