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 and is now available to purchase.
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.
While the adults struggle with an important decision about the future of their community, Young Woman is gifted the solution in a dream. However, the adults don’t recognise the wisdom in Young Woman. Discouraged, she begins a year-long journey towards self-discovery and resilience. With Turtle as her guide, they move through the seasons using traditional practices of the Dakelh (Carrier) people. A year later, Young Woman returns with more knowledge than ever, but will the adults allow her to determine their future?
