Written in the hən̓q̓əmin̓əm dialect, Fern Gabriel dedicated herself to help preserve the language, while her sister, Phyllis Atkins, tackled the illustrations in this fun childrens book!
”There are 1,000 ways of counting in the language – different ways to count people… canoes… houses… birds…” Fern explains. “There are 13 moons in one year and we count moons the same way we count money, because they are both circular.”
All proceeds from this book go towards language revitalization.
