about


The Native Stories from Keepers of the Earth is a collection of stories drawn from the oral tradition of Indian groups in the United States and Canada. Tribes include
  • Inuit,
  • Micmac,
  • Maliseet,
  • Mohawk,
  • Zuni, and
  • Hopi.

    A common thread through 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 Mokawk artist John Kahionhes Fadden.

    Included is a glossary of words from native languages and a description of the tribal nations.

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