OUT OF PRINT This title is no longer available from the publisher Bones in the Basket: Native Stories of the Origins of People is a collection of seven creation stories retold and illustrated by Mohawk artist C. J. Taylor. Taylor introduces the work by writing a letter to readers and informing them of the many ways Native North Americans and Indigenous People explain the creation of the earth. She chooses seven different tribal peoples including the Siberian people, the Chuckchee. Taylor explains that while all the stories focus on different aspects they all have related themes such as the earth is a gift and that all life is interrelated. The creation stories of the Zuni, Osage, Modoc, Mandan, Cree and Mohawk are retold briefly with accompanying full-page colour paintings by Taylor. The longest creation story is the Mohawk one which features the standard account about Skywoman falling, being rescued on the back of the turtle, and creating the land. The story continues with Skywoman's daughter giving birth to twins who then carry on the creation of plant and animal life. Taylor lists her source material for the stories as well as her inspiration for some of the artwork designs throughout the book. The final page provides brief information about each Indigenous group. Unfortunately the factual information regarding the present-day location of the Zuni Reservation is misleading. The Zuni reservation is located in New Mexico. This minor flaw does not detract from the book's strengths which combine stunning artwork with spare text. The book provides younger readers with opportunities to explore other Nation's traditional creation stories. This book is also available in a hardcover edition.
