Learning My Rights with Mousewoman
The tiny but mighty Mousewoman is a legendary figure in Northwest Coast Indigenous cultures' oral and visual practices. She is both grandmother and oracle, able to travel in and out of the spirit world. Mousewomen sit on young people’s shoulders in crucial times, whispering advice and knowledge. She protects and guides young people by helping them avoid or escape bad situations and is never afraid to stand up to bigger beings. This Learning My Rights with Mousewoman brings to life the timeless lessons of Mousewoman—lessons that embody the principles outlined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. A first of its kind, this book empowers children to become proudly aware of their rights.
