January Book of the Month & Rabbit Tales

Tue. 1/29 11a: This month we are bringing you a double shot of stories from two Native authors, from different parts of the country, that both contain Indian Country’s favorite character - the rabbit.

You’ll hear stories that have roots in both Pueblo and Abenaki cultures. We invite you to join us as we visit with Native author and performance artist Joseph Bruchac (Western Abenaki) as he shares words from his new book, “Rabbit’s Snow Dance.”

Also during this hour, we’ll hear from Emmett “Shkeme” Garcia (Santa Ana Pueblo) as he opens his book “Sister Rabbit’s Tricks.” Get ready for some hare-raising fun in our January Book of the Month Edition of Native America Calling.

Is there a rabbit story that you enjoy hearing or sharing? Are there certain lessons that only rabbit can teach?
