Who Speaks for Wolf
Based on three beautiful Native America Learning Stories
by Paula Underwood

Our story follows Honeybee, a young girl living in Los Angeles with her Native American father as he teaches her the ways of their ancestors. Through the telling of these ancient stories, father’s message is perhaps the most important at this point in human history.  It is a story of what happens when people do not listen to nature.  Honeybee discovers valuable life lessons when the People, faced with difficult choices, learned to make good decisions.
