Publisher's Summary

The Gift Is in the Making retells previously published Anishinaabeg stories, bringing to life Anishinaabeg values and teachings to a new generation. Listeners are immersed in a world where all genders are respected, the tiniest being has influence in the world, and unconditional love binds families and communities to each other and to their homeland. Sprinkled with gentle humor and the Anishinaabe language, this collection of stories speaks to children and adults alike and reminds us of the timelessness of stories that touch the heart.

What the critics say

“The stories have been selected, honed and told by the author many times before they were written down and are presented with sly humour, respect and awareness of a long storytelling tradition continuing into the present. The stories vary in their length, their tone, their concrete presentation (several are structured as long narrative poems), and all are relevant to today, not only for the Anishinabe children but for all citizens of western society. Highly Recommended.” (Gail de Vos for CM Association)
