Content descriptions

General Note: Title from eBook information screen..
Summary, etc.: The Miamis, illustrated by prize-winning historical illustrator Richard Day is now an eBook. For years, the book has been a much-valued resource for 4th grade and other teachers. It was prepared with tribal leaders in Indiana at the time it was written and was the teaching text for Miamis in Oklahoma. The Miamis, a fictionalized account of real history, is a fine read for both children and adults. Asondaki, a 13-year-old Miami boy, sits with his mother Matakwapaminji around a campfire near Kekionga, Ft. Wayne, in the years following the Revolution. Members of the tribe: priest, Little Turtle, Crane Girl, Asondaki, and his mother themselves tell stories of Native American history in Indiana, crafts, folklore from their heritage, and a month-in-the-wild each child takes.
