For Indigenous people in our country, accurate and respectful representation is a rarity.
I am very grateful to be involved in a community of Indigenous creators and educators who are helping to shift this narrative. While we may be working with different publishers, we are all sharing our unique stories and in doing so, helping build a different future for all of our children. I have had the great honor to illustrate books written by Indigenous authors from the Tlingit, Anishinaabe, Ojibwe, Nehiyaw and Upper Skagit nations. I am so grateful for these creators and the stories they’ve shared. They represent a diverse range of backgrounds and experiences that together, make up an inspiring tapestry of contemporary Native American identity.

"Luby's (Anishinaabe) creative reimagining of historical events is brought to life by Goade's (Tlingit) vibrant multimedia illustrations, which weave Fisher and Sailor brilliantly into their jewel-toned surroundings."—Kirkus
"The illustrations are gorgeous and achingly rendered. The author, Brittany Luby, is of Anishinaabe descent and the illustrator, Michaela Goade, is Tlingit. Together they have created a standout."—New York Times Book Review
"Eye-catching illustrations and a low-key but thought-provoking story could stimulate group sharing about ways we interact with people from other cultures."—Booklist
