Jigging for halibut with Tsinii  Cover Image Book Book

Jigging for halibut with Tsinii / Sara Florence Davidson, Robert Davidson ; illustrated by Janine Gibbons.


Based on Haida artist Robert Davidson's own experiences with Tsinii (his grandfather), this tender story highlights intergenerational knowledge and authentic learning experiences. Off the northern tip of Haida Gwaii, a boy goes fishing with Tsinii, his grandfather. As they watch the weather, jig for halibut, and row with the tides, the boy realizes there's more to learn from Tsinii than how to catch a fish.
