    Are there any Tutelo children's books?

    I have been asking myself this question for a while now. Especially this morning while watching APTN shows with my daughters. One in Inuktitut one in Ojibwe.

    The Arrow Over the Door by Joseph Bruchac is a great book that includes some of our shared Blackfoot story as a work of historical fiction. It is at least a Grade 4 reading level though. I'm looking for something easier - maybe like a word in English and in Tutelo with a picture on each page or at the most short sentences.

    Does anyone know if they have any resources like this at the Haliwa_Saponi Tribal School?

    If it doesn't exist I would be interested in working with someone to create one. There are some people with writing talent on this forum. Linda I'm thinking of you.

    Is anyone else interested in this?

    I can't write but I have a basic understanding of Tutelo. I have a twitter account that I started putting stuff in Tutelo on it just to get practice. I'd like to do something with it other than talk to myself and make bad tweets and videos.

    Here Are My Peeps - Kay Richardson Oxendine

    Read my 4-year old daughter this book tonight. On the last page she said "They're at the pow-wow like us dada!"

    It's great to have someone telling their story to share. Seeing a lot of Richardson connections in our DNA reinforces the connection for me. In the book she writes that her name is Amelia. Which my wife noticed right away as that is the name she picked out if we have a third daughter.
