From the Sky: Stories of Women Who Inspire Us

On June 14th 2016, World Literacy Canada proudly launched the publication of  “From the Sky: Stories of Women Who Inspire Us.” The book is a collection of stories written and illustrated by the Grade 7 and 8 students of Six Nations Kawenni:io/Gaweni:yo Elementary School. The pages are filled with personal stories of the women who have inspired these students, all written in English with a corresponding translation in Mohawk or Cayuga. The book also contains a compilation of educational resources to practice language learning as well as activities for storytelling and illustrations.

“From the Sky: Stories of Women Who Inspire Us” is a celebration of the strength and inspiration of women in Aboriginal communities, and an educational tool to help preserve First Nations languages for future generations.
