Lessons from the Animal People / Native Voices: First told to her by her Apache grandmother, and then by a lifetime of learning with storytellers from many Native American traditions from the Eastern Woodlands to the Plains, these traditional stories about animals, families and hero/tricksters provide a clearer understanding of the values and cultures of the many different Native Nations of North America. These stories often explain the “what” and “why” questions about the Earth and her animal children—why bear hibernates, why rabbit has no tail, why owl only flies at night and so many more. Whether a talkative Turtle, overbearing Buffalo, unkind Fox, or restless Chipmunk, the characters face the importance of choices as listeners of all ages are spellbound by the animated style and voices.
