It’s the first book that Goade has both written and illustrated herself.
KCAW’s Erin McKinstry interviewed Goade about her award-winning work illustrating “We are Water Protectors” and what inspires her as a Tlingit artist.
In one of the new books, two animals that are complete opposites want to play with each other.
The new books will be released during the Dec. 6 Gallery Walk in Juneau. Sealaska Heritage Institute will also host a Baby Raven Reads event open to the public that night.
The Sealaska Heritage Institute announced this week it will be partnering with the Central Council of Tlingit and Haida Tribes of Alaska’s Head Start to offer the Baby Raven Reads program in Southeast communities.
SHI Education Director Jacke Kookesh says the program creates “safe places for the language to be in the air and to be heard.”
The Sealaska Heritage Institute unveiled its new structure in downtown Juneau today. It’s called the Walter Soboleff Building after the late Tlingit scholar, elder and religious leader. Inside stands a full-sized replica of a traditional red cedar clan house
