Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young People

Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young People
$18.95

Sandy: I love reading young adult non-fiction even though I'm 55. I'm challenged everyday by the world around us and especially by my kids -- to peer closely at the origin myths of America, and history as I was taught it. This book is perfect for that.  Highly recommend.

Spanning more than 400 years, this classic bottom-up history examines the legacy of Indigenous peoples' resistance, resilience, and steadfast fight against imperialism.

Going beyond the story of America as a country "discovered" by a few brave men in the "New World," Indigenous human rights advocate Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz reveals the roles that settler colonialism and policies of American Indian genocide played in forming our national identity.

The original academic text is fully adapted by renowned curriculum experts Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza, for middle-grade and young adult readers to include discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading, and other materials to encourage students, teachers, and general readers to think critically about their own place in history.
