A propos du livre :

Synopsis : This collection of five tales represents the first written record of Chief Lelooska's tellings of the ancient myths and legends that have been a part of the oral tradition of the Northwest Coast Indians for centuries. These often humorous, sometimes frightening stories teach us that we should treat the oceans, the land, and its creatures with the utmost respect and reverence. The stories here are written as they were recounted by Chief Lelooska, and one can even read along as he retells the tales on a CD that is packaged in an envelope inside the front cover. The background sounds of traditional chants accompanied by native drums and rattles enhance the effect of sitting right there beside Chief Lelooska. He brings to life in his powerful voice a harsh natural world of loons and ravens with supernatural powers, and awe-inspiring beings such as Poogweese, Owl Witch, and the fierce Tsonoqua. During his life, Lelooska spread interest and knowledge about the Kwakiutl people through his live performances of their ancient legends and his beautiful woodcarvings of their traditional masks and totem poles. For nearly 40 years, Lelooska and his family of four generations of artists performed in their cedar-plank house with a central firepit the age-old myths, dances, and music, wearing the wooden masks and robes of their adopted tribe. Lelooska was a master at the craft of oral literature, weaving enchanting tales of magic and mystery for audiences of all ages and backgrounds.

Review: A famous Northwest Indian storyteller and his artistic contributions are immortalized in this beautiful collection of tribal folk stories. As a result, the package is as much a tribute to the late Chief Lelooska, who was adopted into the Northwest Kwakiutl Nation tribe, as it is a book for young children. (There's even a CD featuring Chief Lelooska's voice reading the stories.) Entering the book can be a bit slow-going, since it's overloaded with dedications and introductions. Skip them, and aim straight for "The Old Owl Witch," a fingernail-chewing tale that speaks to the tragic fate of a clan of insistently naughty children. Or open up to "The Boy and the Loon," a tale that rewards a sickly boy for his compassion when he meets an ailing loon. In fact, any story can be a starting point, since they are all rich with fablelike morals and tribal symbolism. Although the red, black, and ochre illustrations are stunning, the book's design seems overburdened with the addition of tiny tribal images randomly printed into the text. But children won't care. And besides, the extraneous touches are no doubt a result of the enthusiasm that the publisher felt for the words and images of Chief Lelooska, a beloved elder who devoted most of his life to reviving and preserving the culture of the Northwest Coast Indians. Those who enjoy this book will want to investigate Spirit of the Cedar People, an equally memorable collection of Lelooska's stories and artwork. (Ages 7 and older) --Gail Hudson
