Literature for the Native American (The American Indian).
Rickards, Montana Hopkins
Interest in the American Indian is being shown in publications of various types, as well as by the holding of meetings and through Congressional action and the Bureau of Indian Affairs. An understanding of the Indian can be gained through his literature, poetry, legends, art, and music. It can be found in his newspapers, magazines, and journals. If teachers are to help in retaining Indians in the schools, they should acquaint themselves with the Indian culture and find instructional materials that are relevant to this population. Ten films or tapes and one record concerning the Native American are provided by the ERIC Clearinghouse at Stanford University. The Aboriginal Tribal Groups of North America, numbering 253, are listed under the geographic region which they inhabited. A bibliography containing 82 entries is given. (DB)
