Ushkat's Mushum Dies

Soft Cover

When Ushkat's mushum (grandfather) dies, she is left with a lot of questions. Thankfully, Mom is there, sharing her understanding of what the Bah?'? Writings have to say about life after death.

The name of the main character in this story, Ushkat, comes from Innu culture. It was inspired by the name "Ushkat Uasht?eniman," which means "first light," and was the symbolic name given to one of the first Native Americans who met May and Sutherland Maxwell in Montreal.
