Mawkiljemk Mi'kmawiktuk - Counting in Mi'kmaw

by Loretta Gould

A children's board book in both English and Mi'kmaw that allows baby to count from one to ten with beautiful illustrations based on Mi'kmaw culture.

One is Ne'wt, for one bear. Two is Ta'pu, for two women at the sacred fire. Counting from one to ten in English and Mi'kmaw, baby is introduced to both the ancestral language of Mi'kmaki and to Mi'kmaw culture and legend, through beautifully rendered illustrations of important animals, such as turtle, bear and beaver, and concepts integral to the Mi'kmaw world view, like the Four (Ne'w) Directions and the Seven (L'luiknek) Mi'kmaw teachings. The book features bright and detailed illustrations from celebrated Waycobah-based Mi'kmaw illustrator Loretta Gould.
