Wanton killings of different animals by some hunters and sportsmen are completely outside the traditional way that native people have treated other species, and if these stories can help develop in young people a strong sense of the wonder of other forms of life, this sharing of Native North American knowledge will certainly have been worth the effort.

Animal Stories is nothing but animal stories. Keepers of the Animals is designed for teachers, and it contains activities and discussion questions.

Native american Storytellers; The story of the giants

It says that American Indians have a spiritual connection with animals. Joseph Bruchac's essay, on the other hand, is a pleasure. It takes the same topic and develops it with examples from folklore and Bruchac's experience.

Product details

Bruchac's essay should be used as a mentor text in essay writing techniques. The first half dozen folk tales are disappointing. They are so brief that they read more like summaries than stories, and they do not create an impression on the reader.

Starting with the "Feathers and Fur, Scales and Skin" section, however, the book comes to life. If you like folklore, then you will find much to enjoy here. I appreciate the variety of story types- just-so stories, parables, teaching stories, and even a hero tale named "Manabozho and the Woodpecker" that would sit well next to tales about Beowulf and Siegfried. Mar 16, Ayana Mishelle rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book is a must for 4th grade especially when studying the Westward Expansion and the impact on Native American or anything to do with this country so being discovered.

These are stories that tell of their beliefs and relationship with their Creator, it gives the reader a taste of their myths tat are drawn from their culture. A common thread throughout is their view of the world.

The believed in maintaining balance with nature. Each story has a really beautiful illustration. Great for giving N This book is a must for 4th grade especially when studying the Westward Expansion and the impact on Native American or anything to do with this country so being discovered. Great for giving Native Americans a say with their own voice. Jul 27, Cal rated it liked it Shelves: This was a decent collection. The stories were interesting but felt told in an overly simplified manner.

I usually prefer native american stories to be fully illustrated since we no longer have the benefit of hearing them in the right setting but there were only a few illustrations in black and white. I actually liked the two introductions better than the rest of the book.

Jul 12, Amy rated it really liked it Shelves: There was a great section at the back of the book that told a brief history of about 20 different native cultures which I thought was so well done and just as valuable as the stories themselves. Looking forward to visiting the Smithsonian museum about Native people next month and continuing our learning!! Oct 15, Maria rated it it was amazing.
