I have a new book list for you all—this time we’re looking at books starring American Indians! Many thanks to Debbie Reese, whose website and Pinterest board are great resources for people looking for non-stereotypical portrayals of American Indians in children’s literature. If you want to recommend any other great books starring American Indians, First Nations, or Aboriginal teens, let us know!
