B is for Basketball
“B is for Basketball” is the official book for the 2011 All Native Basketball Tournament held in Prince Rupert, British Columbia. Aboriginal basketball is an integral part of life in BC’s aboriginal communities in the north.
Prince Rupert’s annual All Native Basketball Tournament is the biggest event of the year that draws teams from as far as Alaska to North Vancouver.
“B is for Basketball” is one of the first children’s books on Aboriginal basketball to be published in Canada. The creators of this project are Alison Gear, Joanne Yovanovich, Tawni Davidson of School District 50 Haida Gwaii and Beng Favreau of Literacy Haida Gwaii. The beautiful illustrations are done by local artist Judy Hilgemann, and the book is published by McKellar & Martin Publishing Group.
