Aigle répartit sept savoirs fondamentaux parmi les animaux de la forêt, mais il oublie de mentionner une importante mise en garde; et ainsi, les animaux s’empêtrent dans la jalousie, la convoitise et l’égoïsme. Aigle se doit sauver les animaux et c’est ainsi qu’il est amené à découvrir le sens du savoir le plus important: la vérité.

Dozay (Arlene) Christmas has spent much of her life cultivating her passion for art. Growing up in western New Brunswick on the Tobique Reserve, Dozay is the middle child of a large family. At eighteen, she left the banks of the Tobique to pursue formal education at NSCAD, and although she had always displayed an interest in art, her intention had initially been to pursue a career in education. It wasn’t until her third year at NSCAD, with encouragement from several important individuals, that Dozay decided to switch to the fine arts program and pursue a full-time career as an artist. Since making that decision, Dozay has created and displayed her artwork at galleries and exhibits across the Maritimes, Ontario and the United States.
