Based on the Thanksgiving Address, an ancient message of peace and appreciation of Mother Earth and all her inhabitants. Originates from the First Nations known as the Haudenosaunee, also known as the Iroquois or Six Nations (Mohawk, Oneida, Cayuga, Onondaga, Seneca, and Tuscarora). These words are still spoken at ceremonies and governmental gatherings held by the Six Nations.

Giving Thanks is written by Chief Jake Swamp and illustrated by Erwin Printup. It is a Native American morning message that gives thanks to all things in nature. I really enjoyed this story because I am using it for a Thanksgiving lesson, and it is not your typical type of Thanksgiving book. It reminds me that there are many other things to be thankful for that we often take for granted; a great message for children. ( )

This is an Iroquois message of thanks. It is an illustrated thanks for all the gifts of the world, the things that sustain us, the abundance of nature, and the beauty all around us. ( )
