A beautiful thanksgiving poem translated into English from the native Iroquoian. The native version is included in the back. The author, Chief Jake Swamp, explains that this blessing is still repeated at ceremonial and governmental (Six Nations) gatherings.

Author and illustrator are both of American Indian origin.
