Kunu: Winnebago Boy Escapes
When the Winnebago Indians are forced from their lands in Minnesota, the journey as well as the lack of food, farming and hunting take a heavy toll. Kunu and his grandfather decide to leave the Crow Creek Reservation in South Dakota and return to their homeland even when faced with the danger of being shot on sight for leaving.
Professional storyteller and teacher Ken Thomasma's series about Native American children is colorful and adventurous. Built upon his study of history and interviews with various tribe members, these stories and tales from different tribes spring to life through his detailed retellings. ~ Zach
