(I work as an educator in a native American village. I am with a group of pre-schoolers.)

Me: “Believe it or not, the Lenape used to tie their babies to a board and hang them in a tree so the foxes wouldn’t get them!”

Child #1: “Do they still do that?”

Me: “No, they live just like we do today and don’t need to.”

Child #2: “That’s not true. My mommy and daddy tie me to trees when they get mad.”
