Where can you find strength when someone disrespects you? And what does having strength really mean?

Paul Wahasaypa—Siha Tooskin—has learned many important lessons in his upbringing: build a strong mind (stay true to your values), keep a strong heart (show love for all forms of life), and maintain a strong spirit (practise humility, kindness, understanding, and forgiveness). These are the teachings from Ena (his mom) and Ade (his dad) but even Siha Tooskin needs a refresher from time to time. Starting at a new school can be hard, especially when the kids there have never experienced the values, culture, and teachings of the Nakota people. Join Paul as Mitoshin (his grandfather) helps remind him how strength of character can be found in the strength of his hair.

Buy Together and Save includes one copy of each book.

#SihaTooskinKnows…, with its words and illustrations, is a love letter to our family, culture, resilience, and pride.
—@TanyaTalaga, journalist and author
