Featuring beautiful images of ten Haida Supernatural Beings, this colouring and activity book introduces children to ancient narratives that promote living in harmony with the natural world.

With gorgeous, detailed colouring pages depicting ten strong female figures from ancient Haida narratives, this colouring and activity book is an engaging way for children to express their creativity and learn to connect with the land, sea, and sky. Developed by renowned Haida activist, lawyer, performer, and artist Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson and Haida educator Sara Florence Davidson, this book is a companion to the bestselling picture book Magical Beings of Haida Gwaii, though it can be used independently—either for fun or as part of an educational curriculum for early primary grades. Each image is accompanied by a poem and a series of questions or writing prompts, teaching children about the symbolism contained in the images and the qualities each magical being represents.
