An Aboriginal Carol [With CD] free pdf "An Aboriginal Carol" is the ultimate Aboriginal collaboration: poetry by Metis poet David Bouchard, paintings by First Nations artist Moses Beaver, and the music of Inuit performer Susan Aglukark.

Best-selling Canadian author David Bouchard reworks Canada_s oldest and most well-known carol, "The Huron Carol." The art of Moses Beaver, from the fly-in reserve of Summer Beaver, Ontario (Nikinamik), resonates and awakens an awareness that is at once exciting and empowering, a way for all people to understand the birth of Christ from an Aboriginal worldview. The pride of the north, Susan Aglukark, interprets, for the first time, the revered carol.

Written in English and in Inuktituk, the language of Canada_s Inuit people, the book is accompanied by a CD, which includes a reading in both languages and a performance by Susan. An Aboriginal Carol is certain to become a classic.
