Feb 11, 2020

The American Indian Library Association is honoring a 2018 children’s book with illustrations by a Petersburg artist.

“Raven Makes the Aleutians” is part of the Sealaska Heritage Institute’s Baby Raven Reads series. It was named an honor book by the association for 2020. It’s one of three in the series illustrated by Janine Gibbons (Haida) of Petersburg. Her work helps tell a Tlingit oral tradition story about what happens after the great flood and raven creates land.
