About the Author
Linda Silvas “Little Tree” was born and raised in San Diego and is a member of the Acjachemen Nation, known as the Juaneno Band of Mission Indians, located on the California coast.
In 1989 she relocated to the Paciﬁc Northwest where she resides in a log home in Sequim, Washington.
Her studio is located at the base of the Olympic Mountains (the “Cipmylo” Forest) where she writes and produces her own line of drums, original Native Art, the Mama Bear Baby Bear books and products, conducts drum workshops, and the “Circle of Drums.”
Linda is internationally known for her creative use of natural elements in her designs, teaching how to make the drum and for her commitment to keeping the traditions of the native way alive.
She gave birth to the story of “Mama Bear Baby Bear” through her own personal experience, which led to a magical, spiritual, journey that has become so much more than just one book, more than just one story … for she believes that “We are all the connection in a full circle, the circle never ends.”
