How do you help young children learn more about Native peopls than the cultural stereotypes found in children's books and in the media?

Lessons from Turtle Island is the first complete guide to exploring Native American issues with children. The authors—one Native, one white, both educators—show ways to incorporate authentic learning experiences about Native Americans into your curriculum. This book is organized around five cross-cultural themes—Children, Home, Families, Community, and the Environment. The authors present activities, from children's books they recommend, to develop skills in reading and writing, science, math, make-believe, art, and more. The book provides helpful guidelines and resource lists for selecting appropriate toys, children's books, music, and art, and also includes a family heritage project.

Review by: Joseph Abenaki, Writer and storyteller, author ofKeepers of the Earth - August 4, 2011
[Lessons from Turtle Island] is the sort of book that we have long needed, not just in the Native American community, but in American education as a whole. Drawing on personal experience, careful scholarship, and knowledge of the classroom, the two authors have given us a marvelous tool that should be in every American school. I cannot recommend it highly enough.
