Launch of Pīsim Finds Her Miskanow at O-Pipon-Na-Piwin Cree Nation

Piisim Finds Her Miskanow Cover

On December 7, 2015, the team that created Pīsim Finds Her Miskanow returned the book to its community O-Pipon-Na-Piwin Cree Nation at South Indian Lake in northern Manitoba. The launch was held at Oscar Blackburn School with an audience of students, teachers, Chief and council, and community members. The research team gave a classroom set of Pīsim Finds Her Miskanow, along with a Teachers Guide for the book, to Oscar Blackburn School. The community honoured the research team by distributing gifts to them. Author William Dumas made remarks, and the launch event was followed by a feast hosted by the community.

We acknowledge the support of the Marsha Hanen Global Dialogue and Ethics Award to make this launch possible.
