Soun Tetoken: Nez Perce Boy Tames a Stallion
During the days that the Nez Perce tribe battled the US Army in 1877, Chief Joseph's son adopts a speechless orphan by the name of Soun Tetoken. The "Silent One' befriends and tames a stallion and a coyote pup as he heads toward manhood at a time of heightened racial tension. The story of Chief Joseph and his surrender are recounted here in detail.
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
