Bear and Coyote, paperback

Kenkéknem (Bear) and Sek̓lép (Coyote) are both busy preparing for the long winter months ahead. They have always done this separately and did not share their prepared foods with each other. However, this year Kenkéknem is curious about what Sek̓lép is doing, and he is also very hungry. Kenkéknem’s curiosity and hunger soon get them both into trouble. This forces them to work and learn together to find out how to solve their problem. In the process, they learn through shared experiences and reflect together. They then discover that they have many new stories to share and new ways to prepare foods together.

They gather their relations to share their stories in a wider circle of community in order to share this way of learning through connectedness and relationships.
