Katherena Vermette | The Girl and the Wolf
This picture book for young children is an empowering Indigenous twist on a classic wolf narrative. While picking berries with her mother, a little girl wanders too far into the woods. When she realizes she is lost, she begins to panic. A large grey wolf makes a sudden appearance between some distant trees. Through a series of questions from the wolf, the little girl realizes she had the knowledge and skill to navigate herself—she just needed to remember that those abilities were there all along.
