The First Blade of Sweetgrass

Niawenhkó:wa to First Nations Health and Social Services Resource Center for providing us with this new book.

AUTHORS: Suzanne Greenlaw, Gabriel Frey,

“Musquon must overcome her impatience while learning to distinguish sweetgrass from other salt marsh grasses, but slowly the spirit and peace of her surroundings speak to her, and she gathers sweetgrass as her ancestors have done for centuries, leaving the first blade she sees to grow for future generations. This sweet, authentic story from a Maliseet mother and her Passamaquoddy husband includes backmatter about traditional basket making and a Wabanaki glossary.”
