Today I read this short and thought-provoking blog post and I wanted to
share it with you as it may serve as a good opportunity for librarians and
educators to engage students in talking about issues of diversity and how
historical events and perspectives are playing out in contemporary issues.
Please share with fellow teachers and students as you deem appropriate.
Have an awesome week!

Subject: Those "If You Lived With the ___" Books
The title of my blog post today, "If You Care about American Indians" is a
play on those nonfiction picture books in the "If You Lived With the ___"
series. Your library probably has one or two of them.... I haven't reviewed
them, but do think the title is useful right now, as Native peoples across
the continents travel to, or watch developments in North Dakota.
My post points to the news from there, and a response from elders to a
biased New York Times article. It concludes with a book recommendation (In
the Footsteps of Crazy Horse.)
Here it is, and I hope that you will find a way to make sure students in
your classrooms and schools keep abreast of Native news.
