Stolen Words


Regular price $17.05
In this sensitive and warmly illustrated picture book, a little girl asks her grandfather to say something in Cree, but he says that the language was stolen from him when he was a boy. She then sets out to help him find his language again. It explores the intergenerational impact of the residential school system that separated young Indigenous families and recognizes the pain of those whose culture and language were taken, how that pain is passed down, and how healing can be shared.
