Powwow Summer

RRP $15.95

Click on the Google Preview image above to read some pages of this book!

Life is a circle, just like the seasons, from youth through old age. The circle of the year brings seasonal rituals: a winter of preparation followed by a summer of powwows.

Sharyl and Windy Downwind and their children travel from their home on the Red Lake Reservation in Minnesota to powwows all around the region. For the past year, their oldest daughter, Shian, has been honored as junior princess for Bug-o-nay-ge-shig School. At the Leech Lake Memorial Day gathering, Shian will hand over her crown to the next princess. Later that summer, the family attends the Red Lake Fourth of July powwow seeking healing and comfort. Windy is mourning his mother, who recently passed away, and also honoring her by dancing at the powwow. At ceremonies and in daily life, Windy and Sharyl celebrate Anishinaabe culture by teaching their children traditional skills, dance steps, and lifeways, all part of the circle of community and the seasons and life.

"Clear, informative photographs help clarify the text and leave readers with the sense that they have accompanied the Downwinds. An ideal choice for classroom units on contemporary Native American life."

The artist Paul Klee said that "drawing is taking a line for a walk." This book invites you to take color for a walk through an English Country House and Garden.There are lots of plants, flowers and country images for you to color as well as sections where you can use your own ideas to grow the garden in new ways. My hope is that you color outside the lines that I've drawn and develop these images further with your own creativity, and that you find peace and quiet and time for reflection as you do so.

This adult coloring book contains two types of images: Black and white prints based on my lino cut prints and also greyscale images (or grisaille) which give a tonal look to observational sketches. I hope you enjoy coloring them in!
