The Journey Forward, A Novella On Reconciliation: When We Play Our Drums, They Sing!
This the story of 12-year-old Dene Cho, who is angry that his people are losing their language, traditions, and ways of being. Elder Snowbird is there to answer some of Dene Cho’s questions, and to share their history including the impact Residential schools continue to have on their people. It is through this conversation with Snowbird that Dene Cho begins to find himself, and begins to realize that understanding the past can ultimately change the future.
Tessa Macintosh’s wonderful photographs are featured on the cover and interior of this memorable story.
