[R.E.A.D] We Are

Grateful: Otsaliheliga



* According to storyteller Sorell, the Cherokee people always express gratitude for the little things

they are given by saying the phrase, 'Otsaliheliga,' or 'we are grateful.' Raised in the Cherokee

Nation, Sorell intentionally crafts a narrative that simultaneously embraces modernity and a

traditional presentation of Cherokee community and way of life. Throughout, the measured text

reminds readers that in all things 'we say otsaliheliga.' Colorful, folk art-style illustrations show

Cherokee people during ceremonies, in family gatherings large and small, and outdoors enjoying

each of the four seasons, always expressing gratitude. The scenes are contemporary; one shows

a father taking care of his children, engaging in a positive parenting role, while another depicts a

family seeing off a relative who is leaving for deployment in the military, underscoring that

Cherokee people serve their country. Children participate in rites and in family outings with adults,

and they also play traditional games such as stickball and plant strawberries, a practice that

reminds their people to embrace peace with one another. The variety of skin tones represented in

the illustrations likewise depicts a present-day reflection of the diversity that exists within the

Cherokee people. Occasional Cherokee words are written in Romanized form, phonetically, in

Cherokee characters, and in English—a lovely grace note. A gracious, warm, and loving

celebration of community and gratitude. —Kirkus Reviews STARRED REVIEW* Cherokee

people say otsaliheliga to express gratitude. It is a reminder to celebrate our blessings and reflect

on struggles — daily, throughout the year, and across the seasons.― An extended family

engages with activities and traditions that express gratitude and carry on Cherokee history and

culture, such as stomp dancing at the Great New Moon Ceremony, basket weaving, making cornhusk

dolls, and playing stickball. The book underscores the importance of traditions and carrying

on a Cherokee way of life while simultaneously incorporating modernity and challenging dated

media images of Indigenous people. Here, a father sporting an earring and a topknot minds the

children; a family bids goodbye to a clan relative who deploys with the U.S. military. Skin colors

range from light to dark, visually underscoring the bookâ€s message of diversity and inclusion.

Staying firmly upbeat and idyllic, the cheerful, richly detailed gouache illustrations in bright,

saturated colors cycle through the seasons, beginning with the Cherokee New Year in autumn.

The text includes several Cherokee words; a line of text in a smaller font along the bottom of the

page provides each word as written in the English alphabet, its phonetic pronunciation, the word

as written in the Cherokee alphabet, and its definition. A glossary, an authorâ€s note on

Cherokee culture, and a complete Cherokee syllabary conclude this attractive and informative

book.—Horn Book STARRED REVIEW* Sorell, a citizen of
