Chikeeta and the Pukwudjis, Hoadley, Mabel Veatch
1 Hoadley, Mabel Veatch Chikeeta and the Pukwudjis
The American Indian lives in a world peopled by good and evil spirits. The moon, the stars, the winds, the rain, and the seasons are all living in his imagination. These are the natural phenomena that govern his way of life and make his religion manifest in his daily pursuits. Among Some Indian tribes are elfin people known as Puk-Wudjis. In this charming story for boys and girls these tiny creatures help a little Indian girl through her troubles. Their puckish tricks and kindly ways will endear them to young readers as the more familiar leprechauns, brownies, and gnomes of the white man's legends. There is a repaired 1/4" tear on the front of the dust jacket. The jacket is in a protective cover. The frontispiece is Chikeeta, in full color; the remainder of the illustrations are detailed in black & white. The binding is orange with black lettering, with a Puk-Wudji riding a grasshopper on the front. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall

Cullen Arma, the Bully, and the Shaman's Coat, Paul, Patrice
4 Paul, Patrice Cullen Arma, the Bully, and the Shaman's Coat
SIGNED - The Armas owned a Native American shop, and were coming to pick up some art items from a practicing shaman in the same town. The Shaman's coat waited quietly and unseen in the box that was used to cart the Native American items. The spirit within the coat knew that, short or long wait, it would be in the hands of its next protege eventually. It left the Shaman's home with the artwork, unnoticed and not missed. The mystical properties would be shown to the right person at the right time. Includes questions to reflect on and a vocabulary list. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall; Signed by Author(s)
