Shin-chi's Canoe


Regular price $18.95 Sale price $11.37
Shi-shi-etko reminds Shin-chi, her little brother, that they must use their English names at school and that they can’t speak to each other. For Shin-chi, life becomes an endless cycle of church mass, school, and work, punctuated by skimpy meals. At the river, he clutches a tiny cedar canoe from his father and dreams of the day when the salmon return and they can return home. This poignant story about a devastating chapter in First Nations history is told at a child’s level of understanding.
