We are a storytelling collaboration. We are a group of designers, artists, language teachers and elders who come together to create new learning materials for language learners. These are done one project at a time. Each team member is paid a fee for their illustration, translation, or writing for the book creation.
We conceptualize, write, translate, illustrate, layout books, coloring books, accompanying toys, and other learning tools. We can create original stories or we can work with you as a partner to bring your project vision to life. If you have a story contact us. We would love to help you bring your story to the world!
We collaborate! We are makers. No collaborator is locked into our group or our projects only. FOUR Colours Productions also believes strongly in being involved in the community. We donate to conferences, we purchase advertising in program books, we donate our books to pow wow spot dances, we offer free coloring book booths at events at schools and pow wows, we do readings at libraries and schools and we participate in numerous Native American causes via silent auction and raffles.
We offer a discount to booksellers, teachers & cultural centers email us to inquire.
Our books can be found at the following bookstores:
