Introduction to Native American Books

Introduction to Native American Books

This is to introduce each book and explain where they came from in my imagination. www.TyGouldJacinto.com "Tale of the Turkeys Detailed Tail" This whimsical rhyming book tells how we discovered each other, what we had to offer, and how trading began! We reveal history, and it allows children to use their great imagination about subjects that have deep hidden meanings of the way things really are. "The Creators Great Soup" this fun story is about how we are all related! Did you know that all Native American cultures offer many creation legends? Ideas and stories about the beginning of the world are different, but all conclude that we are all related. "The Blossoms of Bright Flower," are writings by me starting at the age of 13 in 1976 through 2020. I know that this book is different from traditional Anthologies. However, I felt that it best represents my expressions. It is not a mistake that my name is Bright Flower, and this book is a compilation of my writings as my flower blossoms. I chose the name "The Blossoms of Bright Flower" because it represents my blossoming from when I was a child through life today. I decided to create a colorful array of pictures to accompany this Anthology. This creation celebrates my Native American heritage as a part of my expression. "The Wishing Doll." Would wishes really come true? What happens when we desire? What does admiration mean? We will all learn a great lesson for one little Lenape girl and her incredible story of wisdom. Luckily for Mahala, not all her wishes come true. This story tells of the wisdom of an ancient culture, the Nanticoke Lenni Lenape of New Jersey. Mahala lived in the Cohanzick Lenape village in the place that we now call New Jersey. Her home was right along the Cohanzick river, situated between the bay and streams. "Whisper Wind Song." This story tells of the wisdom of our ancient culture; Aliya lived in the Cohanzick Lenape village. This book tells of defeat and triumph and never giving up. Parts of this book are a personal story of myself. "Seek the Better Place." This story tells how you can be satisfied with your accomplishments. People will always have a little more, and people may have a little less, but only if we are seeking in the wrong places. The story is about Koamene and his lesson about seeking. Koamene lived in the Cohanzick Lenape village in the place that we now call New Jersey. “He Talks To Birds” This book corrects the history of the purple martin bird and how the creation of the gourd house really came from our Lenape traditions. "Precious Cohanzick Lenape Crabs." This story is only a part of our life based on what we as a people experience. Although we face many changes, the fact remains that we are our ancestors as we are their children. This book was written so that I can share my experiences of walking the ditches with my Dad, Chief Mark Quiet Hawk Gould, to gather crabs, so my children and grandchildren can have hopes that they will experience this as well. And finally, my two spiritual inspirational books: “The Way to Riches is What You Think” This is a treatise, an observation of different methods of teachings that were tried and accomplished by me. This is my attempt to help others with prosperity by sharing a small amount of knowledge and practice that has worked for me. This is a mix of poetry, stories, and wisdom. It ends with a bit of humor as well. “Twenty Twenty-One, Unlock Your Blessings” and the Calendar to track your progress. This book was written to bring you 20 virtues to practice for 28 days with the Lenape lunar calendar. It takes 21 days to form a habit and 7 days to reflect on the results. Please support these books by spreading the word on the importance of Native Americans in the conversation of multicultural literature!
