Description

Three young men -- Flinch, Bryce, and Rupert -- have vandalized their community. They are sent by its Elders to live nine months on the land as part of the circle sentencing process. There, the young men learn to take responsibility for their actions and acquire the humility required to return home. But will they be forgiven for what they have done? Three Feathers explores the power and grace of restorative justice in one Northern Indigenous community and the cultural legacy that can empower future generations.

K. Mateus is a Canadian illustrator who always knew art was her calling. Her interest in illustration in various formats inspired her to teach herself the skills she needed. She recently attended and graduated from a private art school where she received guidance in the right direction for the type of artist she decided to be. She hopes her work will inspire others with a similar calling to follow her on the path of illustration. Three Feathers is her first graphic novel.
