     In the late 1800s, when the Canadian National Railroad was laying tracks through Northwestern Ontario, there was evidence found that a historical battle between the local Ojibway tribes and another tribe of first nations people had occurred. 

     The 150 page graphic novel, Legend of the Sunset People, tells the story of the young boy who escapes the Sioux devastation of his village, and the hunter and maiden who rescue him. They bring the boy to their village and with his warning in mind, the Elders decide to flee the oncoming Sioux, in hopes of escaping a similar fate. During their journey they encounter Spirits and other supernatural creatures, talking animals and even hear the voice of their creator. There are many lessons to be learned about how to live in the world and what it means to walk a path that will engender the qualities that any Anishanaabe should aspire to – Wisdom, Courage, Humility, Truth, Honesty, Respect and Love.
