Publisher's Summary

What does it mean to be Mi’kmaq? And if Swift Fox can’t find the answer, will she ever feel like part of her family?

When Swift Fox’s father picks her up to go visit her aunties, uncles, and cousins, her belly is already full of butterflies. And when he tells her that today is the day that she’ll learn how to be Mi’kmaq, the butterflies grow even bigger. Though her father reassures her that Mi’kmaq is who she is from her eyes to her toes, Swift Fox doesn’t understand what that means. Her family welcomes her with smiles and hugs, but when it’s time to smudge and everyone else knows how, Swift Fox feels even more like she doesn’t belong.

Then she meets her cousin Sully and realizes that she’s not the only one who’s unsure - and she may even be the one to teach him something about what being Mi’kmaq means. Based on the author’s own experience, Swift Fox All Along is a poignant story about identity and belonging that is at once personal and universally resonant.

Critic Reviews

“Highlights the importance of connections to culture and self.” (Kirkus Reviews)

“Celebrates learning more about who you are and being proud of your identity. Highly recommended for home, school and public libraries.” (Canadian Children’s Book News)

“This is a straightforward tale of a girl finding her way into a culture that is her heritage, yet new to her. As such, it works effectively. This may suit libraries in need of more modern ­Native picture books with child appeal.” (School Library Journal)

“The story authentically depicts how a child might feel being introduced to a culture that they haven’t had the opportunity to participate in regularly.” (The Horn Book)
