Art and poetry combine in this powerful book that delivers an important message about human relationships with nature. As the elders watch the rampant destruction of natural resources through activities like mining, logging and over harvest they despair at the toll humans are taking on the land. The only way to stop the devastation is to urge young people to change the future by protecting the integral connections between man and the Earth which provide us with so much.
This book supports curriculum outcomes related to indigenous relationships with the land, traditions and culture, and needs versus wants. The book also provides an introduction to outdoor activities where students are studying traditional uses of native plants, ecosystems and healthy environments.
A main feature of the book is the indigenous art work. This could form the basis of a cross-curricular action project where students use visual art to express their own values and beliefs about the natural world. The art work could become a gallery wall that highlights First Nations traditional ecological knowledge and storytelling.
