Description: The Tewa indian children of Tesuque pueblo, near Santa Fe, see the world a little differently from their white cousins. They see it the way they have helped mrs. Clark to put it down in My Mother's house. This is their book, they helped to make it, and they have emphasized those things which seem important to them.
The pueblo, The people, And fire, And fields, And water, And land, And animals - I string them together Like beads. They make a chain, A strong chain, To hold me close To home, Where I live In my mother's house.
Ann Nolan Clark found a need in the Indian schools for books written from the Indian point of view. Velino Herrera is a distinguished mural painter, whose illustrations are of a definitely Indian style.
