This is the tale of a little Yup'ik Eskimo girl, whose determination
and persistence help bring a rebirth of traditional dance back
to her Alaskan village. Working together, Lucy and her grandfather
demonstrate for the townspeople their beautiful traditional dances.
Other Yup'ik cultural arts are included in this story, such as
drumming, singing, woodworking, and storytelling through dance.
The author's note at the end of this book includes a pronunciation
guide for some Yup'ik words found in the text. This book
would make an interesting addition to a study of Native Americans,
geography, or cultural studies. I hope you and your students
enjoy this delightful and thought provoking book!
