The Six Nations Lyrics and Lore of Dawendine.
Bernice Loft Winslow. Illustrated by C.W. Jeffries.
All grades / All ages.
[Father] still insisted on us knowing the things that belonged to the Indian, the history of our own people. . . . All during his life we kept that idea of being Indian before us.
Bernice Loft Winslow's Iroquois Fires is a wonderful, celebratory volume of her poetry and the Iroquoian stories and legends she has recorded. Winslow's tales and folklore are enhanced by the pen and ink drawings of C.W. Jeffries, grandfather of the editor, Robert Stacy, who originally attempted to have this poet and orator's work published fifty years ago.
Recommended for all libraries.
