Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices
November is National Native American Indian Month. Students can take this month to learn about the fascinating history of American Indian code talkers who used their native languages to send secret communications to the battlefield during World War II, about the true origins of hockey, or find out that the origins of the US Constitution was modeled after the constitution of the Iroquois Confederacy. Then they can head to the Shadow Ridge library website to reserve a copy of Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices, a powerful and visually stunning anthology from some of the most groundbreaking Native artists working in North America today. This collection of work presents honest portrayals of strong, hopeful, and courageous indigenous youth living non-stereotypical lives.
