Summary

Summary

This graphic novel follows one Plains Cree family from the early nineteenth century to the present day. For Edwin, the story of his ancestors from both the distant and recent past must guide him through an uncertain present and to the dawn of a new future. 7 Generations explores the life of Stone, a young Cree warrior, the smallpox epidemic of 1870, and the residential school system of the 20th century and its familial legacy.
