Summary:
Treat your students to four wonderful folktales told from different Native American groups. "Storytelling Stone," from the Seneca tribe of the northeastern woodland area, explains how stories first came to humans. "Pelican Girl" comes from the Pacific coastal Miwok group: it is a cautionary tale that encourages children to obey tribal rules. "The Boy Who Loved Bears" comes from the Pawnee, a Plains group. This beauitful tale helps students understand the significance of bears in Pawnee culture and to recognize the deep bond between Native Americans and nature. "The Turkey Girl" comes from the Pueblo culture of the Southwest. It shows the importance of trust in Pueblo culture and explains why turkeys flee when humans approach.
