Buffalo Wild! published by Annick Press, 2021, written by Indigenous children’s author Deidre Havrelock and illustrated by Azby Whitecalf
Since Declan was born, his kokum has shared her love of Buffalo through stories and art. But Declan longs to see real Buffalo. Then one magical night, herds of the majestic creatures stampede down from the sky. That’s when things really get wild!
Azby Whitecalf’s playful illustrations add to the joy and reverence in Deidre Havrelock’s picture book debut. A reprinting of the Buffalo Treaty and an author’s note describe the importance of Buffalo to Indigenous Peoples and efforts to revitalize the species.
Offers a great learning opportunity, providing a better understanding of the importance of animals from an Indigenous point of view.
