The Stone Canoe is a collection of stories that Peyton - as a young man, early in the 20th century - heard among the Ojibway Indians. In this book the talented storyteller and artist retells and illustrates these Native American stories of mirth, sadness, and survival from the Northwoods in an evocative, engaging, and acclaimed style.

The Stone Canoe will be appreciated by readers interested in myths and legends of Native Americans generally and, almost certainly, it will become a "must have" title on the bookshelves of readers interested in the Northwoods experience. The Stone Canoe won the 1991 Minnesota Book Award.

Subjects:    
Ojibwa Indians > Folklore.
Indians of North America > Great Lakes Region (North America) > Folklore.

Very good paperback book with slightly bumped corners. Creased areas where normal when read, front cover, spine.

Manabozho and the Bullrushes by Davic Martinson, John Peyton (illust) 1976

Tribes/Ethnic Groups: Ojibwe

Ojibwe story for very young children about the consequences of pride, anger, competitiveness, and excess.

Manabozho loves to play tricks. If someone loses a moccasin, she says, “Manabozho took it.” If the kettle boils dry, they say, “Manabozho ate the stew.” Here, the great trickster-hero of the Ojibwe people gets the tables turned. This is an exemplary story for very young children about the consequences of pride, anger, competitiveness, and excess.

6" x 9" inches, Very good paperwraps with staple binding. Slightly bumped corners. Some small marks on back cover. Interior clean and bright.

The Indian Reading Series (Native American Stories) ~ Lot of 8 Books, Levels 1 thru 4 1970's

In 1972, the Northwest Regional Educational Laboratory received funding from the National Institute of Education for the development of a community-based reading and language arts program especially for Indian children. Twelve Northwest Indian reservations actively participated in the program from its beginning. For the next 11 years, the NWREL Indian Reading & Language Development Program produced 140 culturally relevant stories written by local Indian authors and illustrated by Indian artists.

The result of this work was a unique supplementary reading and language development program for Indian and non-Indian children. The materials were authenticated by the participating tribes and field tested with over 1200 Indian and non-Indian children in 93 classrooms throughout the Northwest

Treaty with the Chippewa, 1854: Student reader, scarce paperback – 1986
by L. Kay Dietl

Unknown Binding: 77 pages, Ex-Lib
Publisher: Minneapolis Public Schools, Depts. of Social Studies and Equal Education/Student (1986)

The Story of treaty-making is a story of conflict and broken promises, of despair and hope. It is a story of the struggle between the European settlers and Native Americans. It is a story of Indians struggling of survive, and a story that continues today as Indians attempt to reclaim rights that were lost years ago.
Even now Indian treaties exist which confirm many of these rights, and give American Indians new hope of peaceful yet productive lives alongside other Americans. Treaties, therefore, are a key to Indian survival.

As you study and compare the culture of the Ojibwe and settlers, you will gain a deeper understanding of what each group struggled for in the 19th century.

This measures 8.5" by 5.5". Very good but back cover is off.

Indians in Minnesota ~ Fourth Ed, Elizabeth Ebbott for the League of Women Voters 1985

In Minnesota, the legacy of the American Indian people is reflected in many ways. Twenty-seven of the state’s counties have names of Indian origin. The cities of Wabasha, Red Wing, and Shakopee are named for important Mdewakanton Dakota tribal leaders. With more than fifty-four thousand Indians currently living in Minnesota, their culture and values are well represented throughout the state. Characterized by a balanced perspective and a comprehensive approach, Indians in Minnesota provides a historical and contemporary account of Ojibwe and Dakota Indians living in both reservation and urban settings.  The authors also focus on central concerns facing Indians today, including widespread efforts to preserve sovereignty, culture, language, and reservations, and to build brighter futures for Indian men, women, and children.

Loaded with photos and maps, this compact volume presents an elementary survey of diverse native cultures extant in what are now the United States and Canada before the invasion of the Europeans. Bancroft-Hunt's ( People of the Totem ) terse, clearly written text shows how various tribes--Apache,

The Arts of the North American Indian, Native Traditions in Evolution 1986 ~ by Marvin Cohodas, Norman Feder, Wolfgang Haberland, Christian F. Feest and Edwin L. Wade (1986, Hardcover)

ISBN-10 0933920555

"The Arts of the North American Indian" is an important attempt to better define tribal arts of North America, north of the Rio Grande. Although initially conceived as a catalogue to accompany a touring exhibition of Native American art, which never materialized, the book's 14 essays are in my opinion a more important and lasting event than the proposed exhibition. Forsaking the usual organizing principles of tribe or culture area or artifact type, the essays in this book address questions of "Meaning," "Tradition," "Aesthetics," "Quality," "Individuality," "Controversy" and "The Future" of this continent's historic tribal arts." (Patrick Houlihan)

Fourteen authorities explore sociology, anthropology, art history of Native creativity. Dazzling illustrations.
Includes essays and full color photos of the dress, lives, and traditions of the Native American Indians.

The book is in like new condition. The jacket shows a slight imprint of what looks to be a band across the middle and some minor scuff marks. Otherwise very nice. 1.3" h by 9.2" w by 12.2" L.
