Kunu's Basket

Kunu's Basket: A Story from Indian Island by Lee DeCora Francis 

Kunu and his family live on the Penobscot Indian Reservation in Maine. When Kunu starts learning how to make a traditional Penobscot basket, he begins a journey of discovery and connection to who he is. His grandfather is right by Kunu's side. Basketry is part of a Penobscot's family's history: basket-making has been passed down from grandfathers and fathers in the tribe throughout the decades.This is an important read aloud about the value of family, culture, tradition, and perseverance leading to discovery and sense of self.
