Looking for a fun way to learn Kiowa? Look no further!
“Saynday Kiowa Indian Children’s Stories” is a bi-lingual (Kiowa-English) children’s book that is filled with tons of funny, easy-to-read trickster stories that will be sure to have you laughing while you are learning. The best part is that the book is great for all ages – not just kids!
The stories were written by Modina M. (Toppah) Waters 12 years ago and have recently been published thanks to the Sam Noble Museum, the Univeristy of Oklahoma and the KIOWA KIDS language program with the help of the Endangered Language Fund. Waters was inspired by the stories her mother used to tell about the trickster Saynday and all of his adventures and antics.
