Wampanoag is a juvenile literature title in the Native Americans series published by ABDO Publishing. The series author is Barbara Gray-Kanatiiosh, an Akwesasne Mohawk writer. The series is designed to appeal to students in grades 3 to 5, and each title covers the culture and history of the particular Nation. In this title, the author describes the traditional homeland of the Wampanoag as the eastern shores of the United States including Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and Martha's Vineyard. Their name means "People of the Dawn" and they speak an Algonquian language. A map helps students locate the homeland and present day locations of the Wampanoag people. Simple two-page chapters cover society (government), homes, food, clothing, crafts, family life, children, myths, war, contact with Europeans, and the Wampanoag today. This book also introduces students to an important Wampanoag leader, Metacom, known to the English as King Philip. Throughout the text there are numerous full-colour and archival photos as well as detailed illustrations by David Kanietakeron Fadden, a Mohawk artist from Akwesasne. The book also includes a glossary of terms, which appear in the text in boldface, and an index. This book is carefully written for young readers who want to find out how the Wampanoag people once lived and how they continue to maintain their cultural heritage. It is accurate and bias-free. This series is recommended for all school and public libraries. Guided Reading Level: Q
