Relationships with Aboriginal First Nations is a book within the series "Welcome to New France" published by Beach Street Books. This particular title in the series focuses on the relationship between newcomers and First Nations - particularly in eastern Canada - New France.

The time frame of this title is focused on the 1500-1700's; this title provides reasonable balance regarding the relationships between newcomers and indigenous people during this time. However; there are many specific stories about European explorers, such as Samuel de Champlain, Jacques Cartier, but First Nation historical figures remain unnamed.

The chapter in this title are: Strangers in a Strange World, Trade Becomes Dominant, Alliances and Hostilities, The Struggle to Survive, Spiritual Lives Collide and European Dominance.

Review:

Wilaiya is counting acorns with her grandmother in the park. No specific mention of First Nations in the book. The characters are First Nations and are playing on the land for interacting with Mother Nature. Counting to 10 and counting and comparing sets.

Overview of the medicine wheel and the animals that represent each direction.

It tells us what each animal can teach us and what virtues they uphold.

In a general overview, not all First Nations groups would hold these beliefs, as these teachings wary greatly. Just a small caution with the generalizations made in the book.
