Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-8-These superb books, written by members of the tribes in question and illustrated with photos by Native photographers, open up the Ojibway and Navajo worlds of two 13-year-old girls to their non-Indian contemporaries. Shannon lives in Minneapolis with her grandmother, sisters, and cousins and is a fancy shawl dancer. Kinaalda centers around Celinda as she undergoes the puberty ceremony among her people. Snippets of family conversation in each book lend an intimacy and familiarity not usually available to non-Indian readers, and Native children will recognize these girls as people they know. A bit of tribal history and culture relevant to the events described, excellent full-color photographs and maps, and up-to-date further reading lists make these titles essential purchases for school, public, and tribal libraries.

This is an older book that my Great Grandson's other Great Grandmother wrote. I was very happy to find it for him.
