New mag for National Indigenous History Month
 To mark National Indigenous History Month and National Indigenous
Peoples Day, publishers Owlkids, 4Canoes, and have released The Ojibwe of Great Spirit Island: Celebrating Indigenous Culture Together, a special magazine for kids aged 4 to 12, which is available on Canadian newsstands now.

Created in consultation with Anishinaabe educators, artists, and community members on Manitoulin Island, the 36-page magazine highlights Indigenous stories and teachings, showcases Indigenous art, emphasizes the importance of caring for the environment, and much more.

The special issue, based on Volume 1 of the 4Canoes ongoing series of Indigenous publications, is supported by a digital learning guide and activity booklet created by educators to help families explore the island, the people, and their culture.

"We are grateful to our partners and the Manitoulin community for working with us to create this fun and educational resource for children, teachers, and parents. We hope this special issue is just one stop along a learning journey that recognizes the culture and achievements of Indigenous Peoples," said Owlkids editor, Jackie Farquhar.
