High Praise for Manitowapow

Teacher Starleigh Grass includes a review of Manitowapow in her blog, Twinkles Happy Place. She writes,

The publishers recommend it for grades 11–post-secondary but, I could see a lot of uses for excerpts of it in earlier years. Highlights for me included Emma LaRocque’s poetry, particularly her poem on being Indigenous in academia and a piece of writing on the difference between being Aboriginal and being an Indian. As a classroom teacher teaching secondary humanities in British Columbia, I would keep this [book] on my shelf.

Starleigh continues with some great ideas how she would use Manitowapow in the classroom. Find these ideas at www.twinkleshappyplace.ca.
