Overview

"The knowledge of the Little People of the Cherokee has been handed down by word of mouth from countless generations of the past. Even now in our modern times, there still are stories being told of the Little People. The entire Cherokee Nation, including Eastern Cherokees and Western Cherokees, call the Little People in their language, 'Yunwi Tsunsdi'...The purpose in the life of the Little People is to be helpful to all people, especially children. They love children and are very protective of them. They have what is called in the English language, 'responsibilities,' given to them by the Great Creator. They are sent out to all tribes of people to help in the times of need...The Irish in Ireland have their Leprechauns, and we Cherokee have our Little People."

This ancient oral history of the Cherokees is presented in hopes of preservation and influence for the younger generations, who are gradually distanced from the cultural aspects of the past that so define them. Recapture this Cherokee oral tradition in The Adventures of Turtle Boy and Beaver Girl.
