Review of Returning the Feathers: Five Gitxsan Stories

These stories will appeal to children and adults alike as they encompass the birth of the first Gitxsan, as well as the origins of the blue jay’s chatter, the mosquito’s revenge and the porcupine’s crankiness. And they provide a window through which to see and learn about the vibrant Gitxsan culture.” – Matt Pearson, Smithers Interior News

“There are Native books you buy to learn the culture that surrounds us; Returning The Feathers will teach about indigenous beliefs, yes, and it’s salty, vital and accomplished to boot.” – John Burns, The Georgia Straight

“Whether Returning The Feathers is a children’s storybook or is worthy of a permanent spot on the coffee table, thanks to [Ken] Mowatt’s original art work and the cadence of Smith’s storytelling voice, is up to readers to decide. – Heather Ramsay, the Vancouver Sun

“These stories serve to connect Smith to her ancestors, and give her readers a taste of the rich cultural heritage of the Gitxsan people.” – Canadian Teacher Magazine
