About the Author:

George Littlechild was born in Alberta, the son of a Plains Cree mother and a Celtic father, and was raised by foster parents in Edmonton. George has exhibited in galleries around the world, and his art is in several important collections. Many of his paintings are inspired by the Cree concept of "Wahkomkanak", which means "our ancestors." He has also written and illustrated several children's books, including "This Land is My Land", which won the Jane Addams Children's Book Award. He lives in Courtenay, BC.

From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-6-Littlechild's personal observations and autobiographical memories are woven with snippets of history in this short but powerful book. The author is a member of the Plains Cree Nation, the largest Indian nation in Canada. He grew up in Alberta and makes numerous references to the pain and suffering inflicted on his people. He mentions the fact that children were forcefully taken from parents to be "re-educated" in boarding schools, the cruelty and abuse many encountered there, and the unlawful seizure of land and other acts of injustice. The author's close connection to his immediate past is represented by a series of sepia-toned photographs of his ancestors, incorporated into some of his paintings. His art is powerful, primitive, and childlike in style-large shapes with little detail. He makes bold use of color, employing unusual juxtaposition. And in spite of the deep symbolism, the paintings are playful and fun. Although the information presented here is not in the form that is usually requested for school reports, it is insightful and deeply touching.
