The new title in Huble Homestead children's book series will be available May 22.

A Prince George historic site is set to release a new children's book that features a Lheidli T’enneh story and incorporates Dakelh vocabulary.

Ceepee and the Fish Camp is the fourth title in the Huble Homestead children’s book series, set in the early 1900s and is inspired by the seasonal round of the Lheidli T’enneh.

It's a children’s history book that celebrates the First Nation's history and incorporates Dakelh, which is the traditional language of the Lheidli people.

The story was written by Huble Homestead/Giscome Portage Heritage Society and translations were done by Lheidli T’enneh Elder Edith Frederick, along with llustrations by watercolour artist Cliff Man and Lheidli artist Jennifer Pighin.

The book will be made available to Lheidli members in early May, with a general public release on May 22, which is also the opening day for Huble Homestead's 2021 season.

The society says the project was made possible by the participation of the Lheidli T’enneh and the financial support of the province, Northern Health and the Fraser Fort-George Endowment Fund.

The Huble Homstead children's book series launched in 2012 with Mr. Huble Builds A House, and since then has added two additional titles: Mrs. Huble Grows a Garden, and Mr. Seebach and the New Store.

The titles were also written by the Huble Homestead/Giscome Portage Heritage Society, and illustrated by local watercolour artist June Swanky Parker.

Copies of the new book will be available Books & Company at 1685 Third Ave and at the Huble Homestead Historic Site, located 40 km north of Prince George at 15000 Mitchell Rd as well as other museum partners.
