Description

Before the angels stars grew dim And wondering hunters heard their hymn One mystic flute - one hundred drums One message clear, "A King has come!" Not one had ever seen the like By light of day or moon of night Before the angels stars grew dim And wondering hunters heard this hymn. . .

An Aboriginal Carol is the ultimate Aboriginal collaboration:

Poetry by Metis poet David Bouchard. Paintings by First Nations artist Moses Beaver. Music by Inuit performer Susan Aglukark.

Best-selling Canadian author David Bouchard reworks Canada's oldest and most well-known carol, The Huron Carol. The art of Moses Beaver, from the fly-in reserve of Summer Beaver, Ontario (Nikinamik), resonates and awakens an awareness that is at once exciting and empowering, a way for all people to understand the birth of Christ from an Aboriginal worldview. The pride of the north, Susan Aglukark, interprets, for the first time, the revered carol.

Written in English and in Inuktituk, the language of Canada's Inuit people, the book is accompanied by a CD, which includes a reading in both languages and a performance by Susan. Also available in French and Inuktituk. An Aboriginal Carol is certain to become a classic.

Moses (Amik) Beaver is from the isolated fly-in community of Nibinamik, (Summer Beaver) 500 kilometers north of Thunder Bay in Northern Ontario.

The images tell stories, represent ancient teachings of his people and remind those who gaze on the work, we are all connected to each other and the natural world.
