For the first time, Author Samantha Beynon and Illustrator Lucy Trimble were able to create a rich traditional Children's book that relates to their Nisga'a Ancestry surrounding the oolichan Fish. This story may be fiction; however, it tells many passed down stories and traditions that have related to their traditional Nisga'a upbringing that has been passed down from their maternal grandmother Jean Fitzgerald Trimble. In this story, two young Nisga'a sisters are gifted with sacred traditional stories from their grandparents that have been passed down for many generations. The two sisters can retain a life long of information that they never knew about the oolichan fish which allows them to appreciate it more than ever. Two young sisters inheriting oral traditions and stories from their grandparents creates a story bringing back the Nisga'a language, history, and culture.
