Book Details

This illustrations-only book tells the story of the Red Willow People of Taos Pueblo in present-day northern New Mexico. Taos Pueblo is known to be one of the longest continuously inhabited communities, designated both a UNESCO World heritage Site and a National Historic Landmark. This delightful board book is part of the Taos Pueblo Four Seasons series which was created by the Taos Pueblo's Tiwa Language Program to preserve the Tiwa culture and revitalize the unwritten Tiwa language by teaching it to younger generations. Many other Indigenous languages also need to be revitalized, so it is the hope of the Taos Pueblo's Tiwa Language Program that other American Indian nations will find the books useful to teach their languages to their children. Each season features a distinct and well-known Taos Pueblo artist. The beautiful, hand-drawn illustrations will also educate young children about the four seasons of the year and the plants and animals in the area. All proceeds of the book support the Taos Pueblo's Tiwa Language Program.

Author Description

At an early age, Leonard Archuleta's ingenuity was recognized, and he was encouraged to pursue and create emotionally evocative art. Depicting realistic scenes of day-to-day experiences, Leonard has been honing his artistic skills in both three-dimensional sculptures and two-dimensional paintings for many years. His deep respect and love for the beauty of his culture and the outdoors inspires his choice of subject matter. His colorful and vivid oil and acrylic paintings pay homage to his homeland, where many famous artists, past and present, have influenced his work.
