National American Indian Heritage Month: Nov. 1 - Nov. 30

Black Elk's Vision

Something To Hold

Nov. 1 - Nov. 30 is National American Indian Heritage Month.  I strongly recommend two books for teachers and librarians for celebrating our American Indian Heritage.  One is Black Elk's Vision: A Lakota Story.  The other is Something To Hold.

There are about 5 million American Indians and Alaska Natives in the United States. The American Federation of Teacher's (AFT ) has resources to help educators promote these groups' rich cultures in their classrooms.  Click here for American Federation of Teacher's resources.
