Tonemah is currently co-writing and publishing a new book with author and storyteller, Joseph Bruchac, telling the story of his family’s journey after losing their home in Oklahoma to a tornado in 2010.
For over thirty years Joseph Bruchac has been creating poetry, short stories, novels, anthologies and music that reflect his Abenaki Indian heritage and Native American traditions.
He is the author of more than 120 books for children and adults. The best selling Keepers of the Earth: Native American Stories and Environmental Activities for Children and others of his “Keepers” series, with its remarkable integration of science and folklore, continue to receive critical acclaim and to be used in classrooms throughout the country.
Tonemah is also writing new songs for an album to be released along with the book.
The project is due to be completed in the Spring of 2013.
