In 1993, the remains of a young woman were discovered at Nagami Bay, Southern Indian Lake, Manitoba. Out of that important archaeological discovery came this unique story about a week in the life of Piisim, a young Cree woman, who lived in the mid 1600s. In the story, created by renowned storyteller William Dumas, Piisim begins to recognize her miskanow – her life’s journey – and to develop her gifts for fulfilling that path. The story is brought to life by the rich imagery of Leonard Paul, and is accompanied by sidebars on Cree language and culture, archaeology and history, maps, songs, and more.
