Available in paperback only.  Joseph Bruchac (Abenaki), The Faithful Hunter. 1988, b/w illustrations by John Kahionhes Fadden (Mohawk).

In these traditional tales of animal tricksters and human heroes, ordinary people and wonderful events from the People of the Dawnland, Bruchac demonstrates how Abenaki children were and continue to be taught about land, culture, and community: about relations between the plants, trees, and animals; about family responsibilities and right behavior; about the importance of patience, courage, loyalty, humility and humor. Fadden’s pen-and-ink illustrations are perfect.
