Indigenous History Brought To Life

William Dumas, a storyteller, is helping to create a series of six interactive story books based around Pīsim, a girl who lived in northern Manitoba. Her story is based on remains of a woman named Kayasochi Kikawenow, discovered in a well-preserved burial site, and a study of the findings was published in 1993. The first book, Pīsim Finds Her Miskanow, was published in 2013. The Six Seasons of the Asiniskaw Ithiniwak Partnerhsip Project will continue this work, publishing five more children's books in the Six Seasons Series written by Dumas. Read more here.
