Turtle Island: The Story of North America's First People is a 116-page volume detailing the traditional stories about Turtle Island combined with scientific research about the early history and cultures of Indigenous North America. Eldon Yellowhorn, Piikani scholar, and Kathy Lowinger, children's author and publisher, offers a unique approach for the general reader and secondary students learning about First Nations. In nine chapters the book uses art, maps, and readable text about the life and cultures prior to European contact. The last two chapters examine recent history following contact and what the future may hold for Aboriginal Peoples. Ideal resource for social studies, history and geography as well as Indigenous Studies. With traditional accounts from a selection of cultures this book provides Indigenous worldviews of First Nations. Guided Reading Level: Fountas and Pinnell Z. Highly Recommended. Turtle Island: The Story of North America's First People is available in hardcover and paper editions.
