16 Jan Dreamcatcher and the Seven Deceivers
David Bouchard’s new book has arrived in our gift shop, just in time for our 15% off January book sale.
‘Dreamcatcher and the Seven Deceivers’ by author David Bouchard and Illustrated by Kristy Cameron. This clever book is the sequel to the popular children’s book ‘Seven Sacred Teachings’. In ‘Seven Sacred Teachings’ we learn the message of traditional values and hope for the future, teachings that are universal to most First Nation peoples and are practiced in aboriginal communities from coast to coast. ‘Dreamcatcher’ warns of voices we can expect to hear in our dreamtime – voices that do not represent the Sacred Teachings.
These are the voices of Seven Deceivers who are spoken of by name. The allure of their whisperings is carefully spelled out in order that all might come to know what to listen for. ‘Dreamcatcher and the Seven Deceivers’ is a carefully woven telling of how and why Creator sent Trickster to Turtle Island with a gift that would help us see the light and resist temptation.
