Alex is attending her first Mi'kmaw spiritual gathering, or mawiomi. Meeting Elders along the way, they learn about traditional Mi'kmaw culture: the sacred fire, drumming, tanning and moccasin decorating, and basket and canoe making. Most important, Alex finds her voice in the talking circle.
With contemporary illustrations by renowned artist Leonard Paul, The Gathering is an inclusive story that will educate and entertain Indigenous and non-Indigenous readers alike.
