nice introduction to the Iroquois tribe
The author describes the life of the Iroquois tribe before the advent of white people. She starts with the tribe¿s vision of the creation story and continues through everyday life, the roles of women and men within the tribe, rearing of children, food gathering and preparation, spiritual customs, and finally the tribe¿s adaptation to modern life. The text provides a short overview of Iroquoian life and is accompanied by very nice color illustrations and a map showing the location of the tribe. Considering the age of the audience, I would like to see a pronunciation guide for Indian names. Overall, well written with the right amount of detail to interest young readers.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
