9-year old Treaty 6 girl pens book about Treaties

There are many books published about Treaties in this country.

But now there’s one that was written from the perspective of a nine-year-old.

Bella Morrisseau says the idea started from a speech.

“I really like writing,” she said. “Ever since I can get pen to paper, I think I started to write when I was three.

“I would write every day.”
