        Hiawatha | Weston Woods

        This Weston Woods segment is from the book Hiawatha, illustrated by Susan Jeffers, based upon Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's epic poem, "The Song of Hiawatha." Longfellow's poem was published in 1855. An epic poem is a lengthy narrative that includes heroic deeds that had a great impact on a culture. In this case, the poem is about the stories of many Native American Indian tribes, especially the Ojibway Indians of Michigan, Wisconsin and Minnesota. This video segment is about a Native American named Hiawatha and his grandmother, Nokomis. As a young boy, Hiawatha learns about all the animals in the forest.
