Makwa has to go to a new school â€¦ and he doesnâ€™t want to. How will he face his first day? The First Day is one book in The Seven Teachings Stories series. The Seven Teachings of the Anishinabeâ€”love, wisdom, humility, courage, respect, honesty, and truthâ€”are revealed in these seven stories for children. Set in an urban landscape with Indigenous children as the central characters, these stories about home and family will look familiar to all young readers. The heartfelt stories serve as cultural bridges to non-Indigenous people wishing to familiarize themselves and their children with contemporary Indigenous culture.
