Spirit Bear: Echoes of the Past is the 4th book in the Spirit Bear series.

For the past 13 years, Spirit Bear has been working hard to make sure First Nations children get the help they need when they need it so they can grow up safely with their families, get a good education, and be healthy and proud of who they are. 

It’s been a long journey, and Spirit Bear needs a vacation!  He and his family set out for Songhees and Esquimalt territories (Victoria, British Columbia) for their holiday adventure. Along the way, they see a statue of John A. Macdonald—Canada’s first Prime Minister—being removed from the steps of Victoria City Hall. Some people have signs that say, “Save the statue,” and others have signs that say, “The statue must go!” Spirit Bear and his family learn why people disagree and how we can learn from the good and bad parts of history to make better decisions now and for future generations of First Nations, Métis, and Inuit kids. 

Spirit Bear: Echoes of the Past was selected as part of the 2021 TD Summer Reading Club!
