"A lustrous production, beautifully designed." - Liz Nicholls, Edmonton Journal
Inspired by various First Nations myths in North America, ranging from Inuit folklore of the Arctic to the Hopi spirit stories of the Arizona desert and the Iroquois legends of Eastern Canada. Nanabush is left to guard the Wigwam, but she is not alone. Narnouk the wolverine keeps her company, telling her he knows the secrets of life. Why birds stay up in the sky when they fly, why the sky is above and not below... and there are so many things Nanabush wants to know.
