    Spirit of the Cedar People Hardcover by Chief Lelooska I know my adaptation and use of this book may have been an odd paring but having no lesson plans makes a teacher inventive We did sketches of superheroes as an activity in Art for a set of first grade classes I used the book and the stories within to show that heroes don't all have to come from comic books That native peoples use stories of animals to show heroic behaviors Reading the stories like the Bear and the ant talking about who is the hero and describing the super powers given to the animal characters made it easy for the kids to draw their own superheroes The book itself is a short collection of native american stories with art work that is inspiring on its own The use of native symbol and artistic license makes this a great book to teach aboriginal art forms and talk about symbol

    This book is a favorite in my 4th grade classroom The illustrations coupled with Chief Lelooska's dramatic retelling via the included CD immerse readers in short but engaging legends of the Pacific Northwest An important complement to studies of Washington Pre Statehood as well as indigenous traditions of our region Chief Lelooska was a spectacular human

    I picked this one out of the family library as we made journeys to see Lelooska performances in Washington State when I was a kid It brought back great memories and the art is wonderful It's uick reading for an adult and I may make a second pass soon

    I really liked this collection of Northwest folktales and the illustrations are absolutely beautiful there are bold blocks of reds yellows browns and turuoise There is also a beautiful wood engraving map of the people of the Northwest coast at the beginning of the book I would love to have similar prints to hang in my own apartment I think the stories and illustrations would even translate well for an older storytime group Oh and it comes with a cd narrating the stories which I haven't listened to yet but again I bet would be fantastic for a storytime or children's program at the library

    A set of Kwakiutl stories from the Pacific Northwest Spirit of the Cedar People and its predecessor Echoes of the Elders showcase the paintings and stories of Cheif Lelooska A CD of Cheif Lelooska telling the stories is provided with the editions I read Listening to Chief Lelooska telling these tales is a thrill unto itself He sings he chants he roars and students wake up and LISTEN to him It provides a very different experience for students to hear the Chief's voice rather than their teachers or the librarians
