Children's author Bobbie Kalman's new series Native Nations of
North America is an ongoing series that looks at the lives of the
indigenous peoples of North America before the land was divided
into the countries of the United States and Canada. The books focus
on geographical areas, language groups, important historical
events, as well as village life and homes. Some of the books also
explain the impact Europeans had on the lives of native peoples.
Every step of the research, writing, and editing process has
involved native writers and consultants and has been meticulously
checked for cultural sensitivities -- and, of course, Bobbie Kalman
has put her teaching expertise to work on each book.
The people who lived in the northeastern woodlands belonged to
many nations and spoke many languages. This region's two major
language groups were Iroquoian and Algonkian. Some of the nations
were friends, and some were not, but they all shared a common way
of life -- life in a Longhouse Village. All these nations lived in
permanent homes and grew crops. They all belonged to clans and each
longhouse was the home of a clan. Children will learn about the
fascinating lifestyle of these hunting and farming peoples who
thanked the Earth each day for its many gifts.
