Newly released!

The tiny but mighty Mousewoman is a legendary figure in the oral and visual practices of Northwest Coast Indigenous cultures. She is both grandmother and oracle, able to travel in and out of the spirit world. Mousewoman sits on young people’s shoulders in crucial times, whispering advice and knowledge. She protects and guides young people by helping them avoid or escape bad situations, and is never afraid to stand up to bigger beings. This book brings to life the timeless lessons of Mousewoman – lessons that embody the principles outlined in the UN Declaration on the Rights of the Child and the UN Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples.

A first of its kind, this book empowers children to become proudly aware of their rights.

Morgan’s biggest inspiration is her daughter Isabele, who motivates her to use her art form to encourage the protection of children and youth through the stories of Mousewoman. “Empowerment and critical thinking are the gifts that we can give the next generations. Ensuring the safety of children allows them to thrive and reach their full potential.”
