April – The Children’s Book, taʔt̕ə́wəsnaʔ Star

Tleena Ives had a longtime dream to write a children’s book. Becoming involved in the UW Native TEACH project gave her the opportunity to do that.

The blogposts over the last three weeks have talked about the Port Gamble S’Klallam Together For Children Project and Tleena’s research with the mothers. Tleena led a discussion with the mothers about what they want for their children. She collected what they said and summarized it in a children’s book.

Here is the grand finale, Tleena Ives’ children’s book, taʔt̕ə́wəsnaʔ, Star:

The children’s book was celebrated in a Book Release at the Port Gamble S’Klallam longhouse on March 31, 2015.
