Native American Heritage Month: Children’s Books for Your Black Friday Shopping
In the case of Native American books for children, I wanted to emphasize contemporary stories as some kids including my own, think that American Indians are a relic from the past. Thunder Boy Jr. There are federally recognized tribal nations in the United States, each with its own diversity of language, ceremonies, and naming. To respect the deeper meaning of the naming, classroom activities where kids pick their own Indian names are not recommended as it is not culturally sensitive. This is a delightful and funny picture book sure to engage kids. The vibrant illustrations by Caldecott illustrator Yuyi Morales perfectly match the story. The author is a mixed-blood member of the Muscogee Creek Nation.
Sharing these stories with your children, whether they are Native or not, is a great way to teach them about different cultures as well as to make sure that their rich stories are not lost. Many of the stories below belong to many different tribes including Abenaki, Mohawk, Navajo, Cheyenne, Cherokee, Iroquois, and more. Crazy Horse is one of the most well-known Native American heroes. The tale is of how Curly grows into the warrior Crazy Horse. Beautifully illustrated by Sioux artist S. Libby Mitchell is trying to visit her friend for a special ceremony on the night of the full moon, but soldiers suddenly rush in and order everyone at the camp to move, including Libby.
