About the Author

Brittany Luby (Anishinaabe-kwe) is the many great-granddaughter of Chief Kawitaskung, a leader who negotiated the North-West Angle Treaty of 1873. With a pen stroke, Kawitaskung agreed to share parts of what is now northwestern Ontario with settlers and their descendants. Because of her many great-grandfather, Brittany believes that words are a powerful tool. Brittany writes for social justice and is an assistant professor of history at Guelph University in Canada. Michaela Goade (Tlingit) is an award-winning designer and illustrator. She has illustrated a number of picture books including Shanyaak'utlaax: Salmon Boy, winner of the 2018 American Indian Youth Literature Best Picture Book Award, and the New York Times bestselling and Caldecott Award-winning book, We Are Water Protectors. She lives in Juneau, Alaska.

Reviews

*"...needs to be shared."--School Library Connection, starred review
"Luby's (Anishinaabe) creative reimagining of historical events is brought to life by Goade's (Tlingit) vibrant multimedia illustrations, which weave Fisher and Sailor brilliantly into their jewel-toned surroundings."--Kirkus
"The illustrations are gorgeous and achingly rendered. The author, Brittany Luby, is of Anishinaabe descent and the illustrator, Michaela Goade, is Tlingit. Together they have created a standout."--New York Times Book Review
"Eye-catching illustrations and a low-key but thought-provoking story could stimulate group sharing about ways we interact with people from other cultures."--Booklist
