About the Author

Arvis Boughman is an enrolled member of the Lumbee Indian tribe of North Carolina. He works with adults and children, as an elementary school teacher and a speech/language pathologist. He has worked with children from many different Nations including First Nations children from the Lumbee, the Eastern Band of Cherokee, and the Sioux.

Alfreda Beartrack-Algeo is a storyteller, poet, artist and illustrator. Her recent book, The Day the Earth Rose Up, is her Lakota version of the story of the Pleiades star constellation. She is a member of the Lower Brule Lakota Nation, Kul Wicasa Oyate, Lower Brule, South Dakota. Alfreda grew up surrounded by her tiyóspaye, her circle of family and friends and uses stories she heard as a child, along with various art forms, in all her work. "As long as I have a story left to tell, I feel I have a responsibility to gift that story forward." Alfreda currently lives in beautiful Palisade, Colorado.


"Relying on accessible language, Boughman's well-paced story will leave readers with a relevant takeaway: All living things have the right to water. Vivid oil paintings illustrate landscapes of Turtle Island and tell a story of their own. A compelling tale laced with an important message: One individual can make all the difference."-- "Kirkus Reviews"
