Antibiotics, bandages, cough syrup, ointment, pills…modern medicine has so much to offer when we become ill. But are medical science, health, and healing practices actually modern?

When Siha Tooskin—Paul Wahasaypa—finds himself not feeling at all well, he learns that there are answers for him from the healing practices of his own people and from Western medicine. Pay a hospital visit to Paul as he learns more about where “modern medicine” really comes from and how we can all benefit from Indigenous and Western healers as Paul seeks the best medicine for his own wellness.

Buy Together and Save includes one copy of each softcover book.

#SihaTooskinKnows…, with its words and illustrations, is a love letter to our family, culture, resilience, and pride.
—@TanyaTalaga, journalist and author

Reconciliation is a big word, and it is a big job. Authors Wilson and Charlene Bearhead show us that even storybook characters can help when they are brought alive in authentic cultural settings. Meet Paul Wahasaypa, also known as Siha Tooskin or Little Foot, as he dances his way through these colourful pages, sharing some of the things he loves most with his new, non-Indigenous friend Jeff…his culture, his powwow dances, and even his beloved Uncle Lenard with all his teachings and teasing! More than an adventure between new friends, this is a colourful, youth-friendly, cultural exchange based on kindness, respect, and willingness to share and to learn.
—Marie Wilson, Commissioner, TRC of Canada , 2009-2015
