The Pre-School Child's Image of the American Indian. NATAM IX.
Bell, Carolyn L.
The document reports on a survey of books, nursery rhymes, coloring books, clothing, television programs, records, and toys which tend to stereotype American Indians in the minds of preschool children. Also included are interviews with parents of preschool children and with nursery school teachers, the results of which indicate that the preschool child is exposed to material that does create a negative image of the American Indian. A selected annotated bibliography for preschool children (aged 2-5) includes books which could be effective in counteracting the detrimental effects of the stereotypical activities presently being experienced by young children.
