1.   Shi-shi-etko
Nicola L. Campbell (Author), Kim LaFave (Illustrator)
Shi-shi-etko, which means “she loves to play in water,” is counting down the four days she has until she leaves for Indian Residential School. She spends her last days at home looking at everything around her to remember all the details, aspects and culture of her home. Her mother, father and grandmother each share lessons they want her to carry with her. The book focuses on the four days before Shi-shi-etko leaves, but does not include her time at residential school. Note: In Canada, United States, Australia and New Zealand, native people were forced by law to attend residential schools away from their homelands. The schools were often far away from the children homes and the students were not allowed to see their families for months.
