Twelve-year-old June is working on a school project. Her research materials are strewn around her bedroom; it looks like a hurricane has blown through! She has chosen two subjects: the Beothuk People of Newfoundland, and The Great Auk, a flightless sea bird. What they have in common is that they no longer exist. June takes us on a journey linking our past to the present as she asks questions about Indigenous People, species extinction, and what does reconciliation really mean? She forms a fun-loving, imaginary friendship with a Beothuk woman called Demasduit, interviews a Viking and survives an ocean voyage in a storm! June asks questions about our history and the impact we have had on First Nations People.
