Judith Silverthorne kicked off her new book, Honoring the Buffalo, with two events in Regina.

The first was at Seven Stones Community School on February 24, 2015. She was joined by Mike Keepness, who illustrated the book, and Ray Lavalee, Medicine Man and Wisdom Keeper of the Piapot First Nations Reserve. Ray is the Cree elder who gave Judith the legend in the book, and he opened the session with an invocation to the students to remember where they came from and who they are. Mike joined Judith in answering students’ questions after Judith’s reading.

The event was covered by  CJME , cbc.ca, and the Regina Leader Post, and picked up by the Vancouver Sun, the Ottawa Citizen, and Canada.com.

The second event was March 21 at the Indian Metis Christian Fellowship building. After the reading, her audience enjoyed bannock and, appropriately, bison soup.

Congratulations, Judith!
