Description


This innovative picture book introduces readers to the concept of Etuaptmumk--or Two-Eyed Seeing in the Mi'kmaq language--as we follow a group of young children connecting to nature as their teacher.

A poetic, joyful celebration of the Lands and Waters as spring unfolds: we watch for Robin's return, listen for Frog's croaking, and wonder at maple tree's gift of sap. Grounded in Etuaptmumk, also known as Two-Eyed Seeing, the gift of multiple perspectives, and the Mi'kmaw concept of Netukulimk, meaning to protect Mother Earth for the ancestors, present, and future generations, Walking Together nurtures respectful, reciprocal, responsible relationships with the Land and Water, plant-life, animals and other-than-human beings for the benefit of all.
