Cuddled and Carried / ?umngaming galopaya ?ida gahamuyo-kida
All babies, whether in snowy dens, warm lagoons, cozy nests, or living rooms, should be nurtured and nuzzled, carried and cuddled. This lyrical, bilingual (English/Washoe) book explores caretaking throughout the animal kingdom. Stunning paintings celebrate tender moments between a child and their mother, father, family, or caretaker in 18 different species, including human.
This book was developed to support and promote the tribe of Washoe (Washo) Indians living in California and Nevada. The text appears in both English and Washoe, with the translation done by two native speakers who have lived and worked in the Huŋalelti (Hungalelti) community. The back pages provide child abuse prevention resources and tips for bonding and deeper discussion.
Creating the book was a community project undertaken by the Alpine County Child Abuse Prevention Council (CAPC) in partnership with local organizations including the Alpine County departments of Behavioral Health, Education, and Probation, and local chapters of California First Five and Live Violence Free.
