The Two Sisters
E. Pauline Johnson, Sandra Butt
The Two Sisters is a Squamish origin story of the Lower Mainland’s Ch'ich'iyúy Elxwíkn (Twin Sisters). A pair of pointed peaks along Vancouver's North Shore Mountains, well known as "The Lions." Over a century ago, The Two Sisters was told to Mohawk poet Pauline Johnson (Tekahionwake) by Chief Joe Capilano, of the Squamish Nation.
This story of two sisters who created peace among Indigenous Nations on the Northwest Coast, was first published in the classic book Legends of Vancouver. Now, this timeless tale is accompanied by Sandra Butt’s evocative and minimalist illustrations. With messages of peace and family, this thoughtful hardcover volume will inspire a new generation of readers with its message of peace.
