Blue Camas, Blue Camas is the captivating story of how a flower that has been cultivated on Canada’s west coast since time immemorial came to symbolize the meeting of two contrasting ways of life and the perseverance of traditional knowledge against all odds.
“Blue Camas, Blue Camas is a captivating story revealing the overlooked history of colonial contact and its impact on Indigenous communities. Through vivid storytelling and diverse voices, it emphasizes land stewardship, cultural heritage, and fostering empathy, making it a valuable resource for children.”
—SAMANTHA BEYNON, author of Oolichan Moon
