Introducing New Children’s Books – “Tale of the Turkeys’ Detailed Tail” and “The Creators Great Soup”

These NEW books exhibit a rich history of Native American stories which are among the thousands of stories from our world.

Native Americans have the ability to seek spiritual power in the natural world which allows for a deeper understanding of the connections that all beings have with each other.

Native American origin stories are rooted in mystery and legend. Most stories are passed down orally from generation to generation focusing on children.

Did you know that all Native American cultures offer many creation legends? Ideas and stories about the beginning of the world are all so different but all lead to the same conclusion that we are all related.

“We must teach the children about nature and relationships at an early age in order for them to be able to develop rich and meaningful thinking and decisions”.

Come along on these fun stories written by a member of the Nanticoke Lenni-Lenape Indian Tribe, Tyrese Gould Jacinto, that tells about our creation and how we discovered each other.

Ms. Gould Jacinto is a skilled craftsperson in Lenape arts, especially beadwork and basket weaving. The mother of five children and 2 grandchildren, she is eager to pass on Lenape traditions to future generations. "If we do not persevere, these arts will not continue or be passed down".

How did the Native American Tribes discover different foods? How did they find out about each other? Has anyone ever wondered or asked these questions?

Native American stories are always told to the children, not only keep history, but it allows them to use their great imagination about subjects that have deep hidden meanings of the way things really are.

Tale of the Turkeys' Detailed Tail; This story is great for all ages! The main character of this story is Chikënëm. This is the Lenape word for Turkey. You can also say “chicken” for a shorter version. I would like to think that this is why we call the modern-day bird that we eat a chicken!

Creators Great Soup; This story is great for all ages!
The main subject of this story is Kishelëmukònk Ahkanshi Kshitay which means The Creators Great Soup in Lenape. With great illustrations to accompany the words, you will be inspired to “contemplate the universe” and how we are related to everything that was created.
