DEBORAH L. DELARONDE

05 May 2014 Published in First Nation Authors

Deborah L. Delaronde-Falk lives in central Manitoba on a cattle ranch along the western shores of Lake Winnipegosis. She honours her Metis heritage by writing and publishing under her maiden name. Deborah’s nine published stories (with the exception of Friendship Bay and The Rabbit’s Race) are historical in setting and focus around Metis protagonists, with story situations that she hopes will convey the way of life of the Metis people in early Canadian history. The Stone Gift is contemporary in setting and is her tenth book. Deborah is the first recipient of the ‘Beatrice Mosionier Aboriginal Writer of the Year Award’ in 2015 (Manitoba Book Awards).

Author: Deborah L. Delaronde (*winner of the 2015 Beatrice Mosionier Aboriginal Writer of the Year Award!)

Emma wants to participate in her community’s annual ‘King’s Day’ celebration that is held every year on January 6th. She loves to see the gifts that are given and hear the stories people tell when they visit. Her mother, however, feels that Emma is too young.

When Emma’s grandmother hurts herself, Emma reluctantly agrees to help. In helping her grandmother prepare and serve her King’s Day meal, Emma discovers the meaning behind this special day. ‘King’s Day’ is about celebrating Christ’s birth and the Three Wise Kings who visited the baby Jesus bearing gifts on this holy day. Emma learns that ‘King’s Day’ is not only about exchanging gifts, it’s also about helping family and friends by giving one's time.

Living in Harmony

basilLiving in Harmony - The Anishinaubaemowin series
by author: Basil Johnston.

“In late August the birds that migrate for the winter begin to gather in flocks. How soon or late they gather will reflect how soon or late winter will set in, but it will always take place in conjunction with the setting of autumn. It is the voice of Mother Earth pulsating through the plants to the insects, birds, and animals, letting them know that it is time to go. What insects, birds and animals do in answer to Mother Earth’s beckoning is nothing more nor nothing less than it is time to do this because this is taking place.”
