Native American Heritage Month with #NativeReads Campaign

November is Native American Heritage Month  in the U.S., and First Nations Development Institute (First Nations), a national Native American nonprofit organization, honors that heritage this year by celebrating Native-themed children's literature. 

Ahead of this month’s celebration, First Nations launched the national #NativeReads campaign in October by featuring five selected children's books by Native authors. The campaign included a discussion guide for each book, plus a list of “Ten Ways to Make a Difference” by promoting or sharing the books. Subsequently, on Nov. 1, First Nations supplemented that original list of five books with an additional 25 “must read” books for children and young people. 

Please visit www.firstnations.org/HeritageMonth2016 to find the featured books and a link to the entire reading list. The list and other resources on the page are free.
