Grandfathers Speak, The
Native American Folk Tales of the Lenapé People
Hitakonanu'laxk (Tree Beard)

5 1/2" x 8 1/4" • 160 pages
ISBN 9781566561280 • paperback • $13.95

Beautifully and authentically narrated, these stories tell among other things, of how Nanapush, the Grandfather of Beings and Men, created the earth upon the back of a great turtle; of how Mànàka'has the Rainbow Crow, flew to the twelfth heaven to receive the gift of fire from the Creator; and of how the Lenapé people came to live along the eastern seaboard of what is now known as the United States.

Hitakonanu'laxk, a chief of the Lenapé Nation, has done extensive research, among his people and in private and government archives, to recover and re-tell the tales collected in The Grandfathers Speak.


Media Reviews
" Here are 24 gracefully told stories of the Lenapé... [This collection] begins to fill a hole in documentation of the Lenapé peoples. " — Choice
