The Native Stories From Keepers of the Earth

The Native Stories from Keepers of the Earth is a collection representing several aboriginal groups of North America, including Inuit, Micmac, Maliseet, Mohawk, Zuni, and Hopi. A common thread throughout these stories is a view of the world as family - earth as our mother, sun as our father and the animals as our brothers and sisters. The stories foster an ethic of stewardship by clearly showing that we are entrusted with the responsibility to maintain the natural balance, to take care of our mother, to be keepers of the earth. Each story is beautifully illustrated by Mohawk artist John Kahionhes Fadden.

Joseph Bruchac or Sozap, his Abenaki name, is an award-winning poet, novelist, and storyteller who follows the traditional ways. His work reflects his culture in emphasizing that storytelling is natural and necessary to all people. He has been a storyteller-in-residence at the Onondaga Indian School and the Akwesasne Mohawk School.

These twenty-four stories from the best-selling Keepers of the Earth will appeal to readers of all ages.

Foreword by N. Scott Momaday
