Chatwin Books, 2023. First Edition. Trade Paperback. New. Item #627823
New. Indigenous author and illustrator Sondra Segundo brings us Kúndlaan, the first of three children’s books in a series that celebrates Haida culture and language. Kúndlaan tells the story of a wolf pup who takes an exciting trip to the moon! Inspired by ancient Haida stories, each original tale in the series weaves in Haida language and song to help encourage the revitalization of her Indigenous culture. Kúndlaan is among first children’s books to ever be published entirely in Alaskan Haida, a critically endangered language. For thousands of years the Haida language was passed down exclusively through song and oral tradition. Recently, a Haida alphabet was developed, making this book possible.
