Stories from ancient cultures

About Pe’ Publishing

Pe’ is a publishing house from Israel, established in 2017 in order to publish, in Hebrew, stories from oral tradition of cultures from around the world.

The idea for the publishing house sprang while traveling for a year with my family in North America (what we call, “our family expedition”). Dwelling in nature for long durations, we experienced the nonverbal force of the forests, the streams and lakes, the mountain ridges, ice caped volcanoes, the ocean and the plains. We were curious to hear what the people who roamed these expanses for thousands of years had to say about their land and about themselves.  As such, the first cultures we are publishing stories from are the native cultures of North America.

We locate and gather stories from primal sources, from natives of the cultures that tell their own stories or from anthropologists and researchers who documented stories in the past.

We aspire to sound the voices of the people who told these stories and believed in them, and to make room for them in these busy times. We translate the stories with loyalty to the original, and refrain from making any adaptation. We strive to stay faithful to the story, the storyteller and the culture they come from.  

In order to make room for these old cultures we gather, in this website, information about each culture from which we publish stories: literal information and facts in Hebrew, links to movies, music, pictures, art and stories — so the curious can roam and discover more about the people, the cultures and the places in which these stories existed and were told.
