Rate this:

One, two, three, four mornings left until I go to school," said Shi-shi-etko as she watched sunlight dance butterfly steps across her mother’s sleeping face. In just four days young Shi-shi-etko will have to leave her family and all that she knows to attend residential school. She spends her last days at home treasuring the beauty of her world – the dancing sunlight, the tall grass, each shiny rock, the tadpoles in the creek, her grandfather’s paddle song. Her mother, father and grandmother, each in turn, share valuable teachings that they want her to remember. And so she carefully gathers her memories for safekeeping. The author's goal is to to open eyes and hearts to the impact of Residential Schools on Aboriginal children and families. Hopefully, children who read this can understand that no matter who they are, or where they come from, they are sacred. Readers can be inspired by the message in this book and be proud of who they are and where they come from.
