The Potlatch by Pauline Johnson Episode 33 Happy 150 Canada

It's Canada's 150th and the Lilypad is featuring a favourite Canadian storyteller: E. Pauline Johnson, also known as Tekahionwake. In this story, Pauline Johnson describes a little boy named Talapus who longs to leave his home on Vancouver Island to see the wider world and attend a Potlach, or great gift-giving feast on the mainland of British Columbia. Will he dance? Will he please the great Tyee? Will he make his father and his namesake, the Prairie Wolf, proud?
