Item Description...
Introduces the traditional daily life of the Native nations who lived in longhouses and shared a common way of life.

Publishers Description
Children's author Bobbie Kalman's new series Native Nations of North America is an ongoing series that looks at the lives of the indigenous peoples of North America before the land was divided into the countries of the United States and Canada. The books focus on geographical areas, language groups, important historical events, as well as village life and homes. Some of the books also explain the impact Europeans had on the lives of native peoples. Every step of the research, writing, and editing process has involved native writers and consultants and has been meticulously checked for cultural sensitivities -- and, of course, Bobbie Kalman has put her teaching expertise to work on each book.

The people who lived in the northeastern woodlands belonged to many nations and spoke many languages. This region's two major language groups were Iroquoian and Algonkian. Some of the nations were friends, and some were not, but they all shared a common way of life -- life in a Longhouse Village. All these nations lived in permanent homes and grew crops. They all belonged to clans and each longhouse was the home of a clan. Children will learn about the fascinating lifestyle of these hunting and farming peoples who thanked the Earth each day for its many gifts.

Topics include:
-- clan and village life
-- how a longhouse was built
-- life inside the longhouse
-- gifts from the land
-- making clothes from hide
-- the roles of men, women, children and elders
-- games and celebrations

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Highly Detailed, Interesting Book  Dec 9, 2006
I first encountered this book, along with others in the "Life in a. . ." series about Native Americans, as I was going through a teacher training program in college. The 5th-grade classroom teacher who I interned with loved these books and used them every year during her Native American Social Studies Unit. And they are great books. With lots of relevant text combined with plenty of descriptive illustrations, this book is one of few that is historically accurate while being interesting. While some critics disliked the pictures, I thought the mix of illustrations and photographs gave the book balance and appeal to a wider range of readers. In addition, the information presented is detailed enough for students to use in reports or class projects. I highly recommend this book for kids 4th through 8th grade.
