An Annotated Bibliography of Young People's Books on American Indians. Indian Education Curriculum Bulletin No. 12.
Bureau of Indian Affairs (Dept. of Interior), Albuquerque, NM.
Approximately 367 books on American Indians, published between 1931 and 1972, are listed in this annotated bibliography and are graded for students between the primary and 12th grade level. This bibliography is a supplement to "An Annotated Bibliography of Young People's Fiction on American Indians," Curriculum Bulletin No. 11, published in January 1972. The purpose of this supplement is to provide teachers and librarians with more materials which can be used to help American Indian children gain pride in their Indian heritage and in themselves. It is also hoped that these materials will help non-Indian children to gain a deeper understanding of their Indian brothers. Each of the books has either been written by an Indian or has been reviewed from an Indian viewpoint. Consequently, the books listed in this supplement have been included for their accuracy and fair treatment of the Indian. This bibliography, unlike the first, contains both fiction and nonfiction works. (Author/FF)
