In this book, Kenneth Thomasma puts some of the complex and often mystical beliefs of the Blackfeet, on a level that is very understandable. Part of the Amazing Indian Children Series). Entertaining for children (and good with potato chips). Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 19 years ago. I have fond memories of curling up with this book and a few potato chips (yes, potato chips). I think this is a wonderful, educational book for young children - and definitely not your run-of-the-mill school assignment.

I read this book to my children over a few weeks and all of us enjoyed it greatly.

This story centers on the adventures of a blackfeet tribe where a woman (Tall Woman) gives birth to twins. Initially it looks as if one of the twins will be left to die, but a tribal decision is made to let their mother keep them both.

We watch the twins grow up and both become a huge benefit to the tribe in various ways. Along the way you learn some of how the blackfeet people lived and how they viewed their world at the time.

I especially liked the descriptions when some of the blackfeet see horses (elkdogs) for the very first time. It really made me imagine what it must have been like to see a horse for the first time ever. And also made me think about things I've seen for the first time that have later made a huge change in my life.

The simple sketches are a nice addition to a story that should be on every child's bookshelf. I highly recommend this book.
There is far too little literature out there for young kids regarding Native Americans. But Kenneth Thomasma is trying to close that gap. Om-kas-toe is a wonderful story which takes place in the 18th century of North West America.

Om-kas-toe has a sister who is his twin and the story deals with the luck the twins bring the Blackfeet tribe. The book has a wonderful cast of characters from a wise raven, a loving mother, an Old Man, and the scary Snake warriors.

This childrens novel is a must read for any child hungering for knowledge of Native Americans.
