Abstract:

Library Journal: The Native American (NA) experience as presented in children's books is reviewed through essays, poetry, book reviews, guidelines for evaluating books, a resource list of organizations, a bibliography of books by and about NAs, American Indian authors for young readers, and illustrations. The essays may help or hinder Native American concerns. There is hostility: You know us (NAs) only as enemies.'' No location is given for the cited Iroquois document which states: ``Even the form of our government seems to owe a greater debt to the Constitution of the Six Nations of the Iroquois than to any European document.'' One positive suggestion is offered: ``Visit with living American Indian people, try to find out more about their ways of life and their languages.'' The book reviews are similar to the essays, and the illustrations are traditional.
