This collection of familiar Iroquois stories—including “Thunder Boy,” “The Flying Head,” “”The Story of the Great Bear, the Big Dipper,” “Why We Have Mosquitoes,” and others less known—told by elder and tribal scholar Tehanetorens, is made unique by the fact that they are also told in pictographs. There is a short essay on picture writing, and many pages of translations of the symbols themselves, including those for each of the clans of the Six Nations. The non-pictograph illustrations, by Mohawk artist Kahionhes/John Fadden, expand the meaning and power of the stories.
