Imbued with humour, vision, mystery, and dreams, these nine tales, and Ken Syrette's luminous paintings, reveal the power of Ojibwa myth-making and a world of thunderbirds and sea-serpents, star-men and mermaids.
The ancient storytelling and picture-making traditions of the Ojibway (Anishinaubae) people find new expression in the myths and legends collected by Basil Johnston and illustrated with vibrant contemporary native art. In celebration of these traditions, The Star-Man brings together legends told by current narrators Basil Johnston, Sam Ozawamik, and Frank Shawbedees with others told by Jonas George, of the Rama First Nation, early this century. The tales are exquisitely illustrated by Ken Syrette of the Batchewana First Nation.
