What's The Gathering About

Publisher Summary

Alex is attending her first Mi’kmaw spiritual gathering, or mawiomi. Though she is timid at first, older cousin Matthew takes her under his wing. Meeting Elders along the way, they learn many things about traditional Mi’kmaw culture: the sacred fire, drumming, tanning and moccasin decorating, and basket and canoe making. Most important, Alex finds her voice in the talking circle. With contemporary illustrations by bestselling illustrator Arthur Stevens, The Gathering is an inclusive story that will educate and entertain Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike.
