    This series which includes Brave Bear and the Ghosts A Sioux Legend Sunflower’s Promise A Zuni Legend Coyote and the Grasshoppers a Pomo Legend Red Hawk and the Sky Sisters A Shawnee Legend First Woman and the Strawberry A Cherokee LegendSong of the Hermit Thrush An Irouois Legend follows the format of an adapted story followed by non fiction information a glossary and a timeline at the end of the book There is no explanation in any of the books as to who the author is or what her relationship is to the tribes in order to be ualified to tell their stories There is no acknowledgement of the source of the stories Which elder told her the stories? When tribes’ stories are ‘retold’ by those outside of the culture of the story’s origination there is a great risk of misrepresenting certain important aspects of the story When a story is ‘adapted’as all of these are listed as 'adapted and retold' that risk increases since that indicates that the author has taken it upon themselves to edit the story most likely cutting parts of cultural importance andor adding parts that are not culturally a part of the tribe’s original story The tradition of oral stories are important they are learning tools medicine wheels They have included for generations parts that are culturally needed and do not include parts from other cultures It is important to hear them from a valid and acknowledged source and faithfully record them If an author was told a story from a valid elder it is most likely that elder would be acknowledged in the bookThe non fiction section of the books is written in the past tense and therefore serves to reinforce stereotypes In this ‘non fiction’ section there are also inaccuracies for example “Unlike other native peoples the Pueblos were able to spin weave and dye cotton and wool from very early on” Sunflower’s Promise This is a false limitation In First Woman and the Strawberry it is not made clear that the Cherokee now reside in two locations both powerful federally recognized tribes Instead the focus is on the Oklahoma Cherokee leaving students with the impression that the Cherokee are based in OklahomaThere is also a “Today” section which is uite small two paragraphs at the most compared to nine to twelve paragraphs focusing on history and written in the past tense We Native people struggle DAILY to let the rest of the world know that we are still here and that there is a thriving vibrant Indian Country parallel to the mainstream world that most people still know nothing about Books that downplay our contemporary lives and play up the historical aspect only add to the struggle There is also undesirable phrasing here Sunflower’s Promise and Red Hawk and the Sky Sisters state “ non native careers such as doctors lawyers writers and fire fighters” and “ non native careers such as law education and the arts” Non native careers? Is there a career I'm not supposed to have? Are students to think that Natives can not normally be doctors lawyers writers and fire fighters? Are Native students to think that is unusual? Despite the ‘today’ concept of this paragraph or two paragraphs the illustrations and photos used are historical defeating any good the scant text provides There is only one photograph is one book First Woman and the Strawberry that is contemporaryThe timeline is similarly problematic as it ends decades before the books were published It would have been a fairly simple matter to find out current major tribal initiatives to include in the timelines but 1987 is the most current entry on the timelines with most ending in the 1960sThere are also inaccuracies in the glossaries For example in Coyote and the Grasshopper “Sweat lodge A structure where men meet to talk sweat and sleep” They were used by men and women In Red Hawk and the Sky Sisters “Our Grandmother A female deity worshipped as the Creator by the Shawnee” A accurate definition would be “The Creator according to the Shawnee and many other Native American tribes”I would discourage parents and teachers from using these books They can only lead to misconceptions about America's Native people
