Better, not worse

Lynn Johnston has done another great Native sequence in her For Better or For Worse comic strip. This time it features Elizabeth taking leave of the Mtigwaki Reserve, where she's been teaching. The sequence runs from 6/19 to 7/3.

Note also that Johnston devotes a whole area of her website to the Mtigwaki band. As Wikipedia explains:Mtigwaki, Ontario, is a fictional First Nations reserve in the comic strip For Better or For Worse. The town, located in Northwestern Ontario, is home for a tribe of the Anishinabek Nation. The name, pronounced mm-tigwak-eh, means "Land of Trees."
