Tapenum's Day : A Wampanoag Indian Boy In Pilgrim Times by
Kate Waters, Russ Kendall (Illustrator)
This book shows the daily life of a Native American child during the
time of the Pilgrims. This book goes great with Sarah
Samuel Eaton's Day, and On the Mayflower.
Tapenum's Day offers insight and detail into the life of this young Native
American in the 1620s. He hunts for food, shoots a rabbit for his mother,
and goes fishing with a companion. Large, brilliant photographs were
taken at a re-created Indian homesite at
Plymouth Plantation in Massachusetts. Both the text and photographs show
attention to detail. Notes explain
facts about the Wampanoags that come from archaeological
findings in the area.
