Reviews

5 starsAbsolutely a MUST HAVE for all elementary schools!

By Seriously!!!! on February 10, 2015

Format: Paperback

This is a wonderful Original First Nations book filled with beautiful illustrations and true information, for children learning about First Nations, culture. It is written and illustrated by First Nations author Deron Sasonake Douglas, BEd.

It provides teachers with great resources for incorporating this valuable information (that is usually missing in the classrooms) into their lesson plans. Along with the other traditional stories, information and facts that are found at the end of the book, there is also a wonderful guide to help teachers ask the right questions to encourage great discussion in the classroom. If you are looking for the true teachings of the First Nations, this series of books is exactly what you are looking for.

This book along with the series to come, is a MUST HAVE in all schools!

Expressions of Identity, Decolonization and NDN Stories: An Interview With Deron Ahsén:nase Douglas

About the Author


Deron Ahsén:nase Douglas


Expressions of identity, decolonization & NDN stories.

Deron Ahsén:nase Douglas is a Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) artist/author with roots in the Kahnawà:ke Mohawk Territory. Working with oils on canvas (although he has dabbled in stone and wood carving, clay, photography, water color, acrylic and print-making), he now illustrates children’s story books and creates cover art with more than a 1000 cover images to his name.

He continues to work within his favourite medium and signs his oil paintings with his Kanien’kéha name as he did more than 40 years ago. The artist is currently working on a group of paintings that examines Native North American/First Nations/Aboriginal/NDN identity and culture within today’s society, as well as traditional storytelling and its characters. They can be found within private collections across Canada and the USA, and can be viewed at http://www.derondouglas.ca.

The artist/author grew up within a culture of oral storytelling, and remembers the many stories told by his father and grandmother around the kitchen table. His favourite story, which was told by his father Wishé, is called Raké:ni’s Farm and is a true ghost story which has haunted his family for generations. This story along with his version of the Three Brave Hunters and the Great Bear are scheduled for release within the 2016-2017 time frame. In 2015 he released an illustrated children’s story book entitled Coyote Boy: An Original Trickster Story.

He is currently an “Artist in Residence” for the York Region District School Board, as well as a First Nations Storyteller and First Nations teaching advisor. He has formal training in the fine arts (art history and photography), visual design, computer science, social science, education and is a member of the Ontario College of Teachers.

His paintings will be on exhibit May 28th to July 29th, 2016 at the Woodland Cultural Centre in Brantford Ontario, Canada.
