Shin-Chi's Canoe by Nicola I Campbell

Book Description

When they arrive at school, Shi-shi-etko reminds Shinchi, her six-year-old brother, that they can only use their English names and that they can't speak to each other. For Shinchi, life becomes an endless cycle of church mass, school, and work, punctuated by skimpy meals. He finds solace at the river, clutching a tiny cedar canoe, a gift from his father, and dreaming of the day when the salmon return to the river a sign that it s almost time to return home. This poignant story about a devastating chapter in First Nations history is told at a child s level of understanding."
