The Sweat Lodge teachings of the Anishinaabe are an important influence on the daily lives of the people. Full of symbolism, interconnected one with another, they are not as uncomplicated as they might seem.
The Little Boy's Vision Quest is one of those teachings and it reveals how the Sweat Lodge was brought to the people. Anishinaabe author James Whetung has crafted a crisp, clear telling while retaining the cadence of its oral beginnings. Paintings by Paul Morin evoke the crackle of fire, the scent of cedar, the mysterious dark side of the moon.
