It all started with a dream . . .

The inspiring A Dance Through the Seasons is told through story and cultural teachings by award-winning

Dakelh educator Leona Prince, with dream-like illustrations from acclaimed Cree and Métis artist Carla Joseph.

Readers of all ages will admire Young Woman as she endures and learns from each of the four seasons using many traditional means. Like Young Woman, we all have something to learn – from nature, the seasons, and our Elders, when we recognize and trust in our guides.


Young Woman, like many people her age, is full of curiosity, energy and strength. What happens when people around you don’t recognize that strength?

This story is about the journey of Young Woman and Turtle. They move through the seasons together and Young Woman learns that growing up takes patience and time. Leadership comes from within, but it also comes from listening to the world around you.

A Dance Through the Seasons not only leads you through the story of one girl’s path, but also through the seasonal rounds of the Dakelh (Carrier) people of British Columbia.
