In addition to what I’ve shared on other pages, there are other sources.


An extensive resource from ARAPAHOE LIBRARIES

From Lisa Mitten, with the American Indian Library Association. Valuable connections to individual TRIBE SITES. 

For a critical look at current and also outdated titles about Indians, please check into the extensive online resource of Dr. Debbie Reese and the American Indians in Children’s Literature site, which is well-read and frequently features important commentary from readers of her site.

Seasoned researchers will love that there is more to learn. Oyate is one of the sites, in addition to individual tribal sites and American Indians in Children’s Literature, where I began and continue my lessons.

My list below, whenever possible, features titles by tribal members or researchers or scholars members respect.

The Crafts of Florida’s First People and also Fossiling in Florida, each of them by Pineapple Press.

Early people receive important attention from Canada’s Annick Press; . a title specifically for young readers that I share with students is A Native American Thought Of It. Also look for  Latin Americans Thought of It. 

Here are other resources for your tool kit:

Especially if you are in Florida (or just curious) learn about the origin of the word hurricane.
