Isto, Sarah A., Comp.
The wide variety of books and informational resources presently available about the American Indian people of Alaska reflect their cultural diversity. Intended to assist the teacher in identifying, collecting, and assessing useful materials on the Alaska Native cultures, this publication cites approximately 406 books, periodicals, films, filmstrips, slides, and other miscellaneous media. The materials are listed according to: (1) Aleut resources; (2) Athabascan Indian resources; (3) Eskimo resources; (4) Hiada, Tlingit, and Tsimpshian Indian resources; (5) multicultural resources; (6) materials currently in production; and (7) resources for teachers. Among the topics covered are education, cultural background, history, art, folklore, acculturation, literature, and language. Borrowing and purchasing sources, a sample annotation, and an explanation of the criteria used in selecting and annotating each type of media are given. Book annotations include the culture, geographic area, and historical setting; a brief description of the book's contents and special features such as maps, outstanding illustrations or photographs; reading level (elementary, junior high, high school, or adult); and weaknesses of the materials according to the selection criteria. Unless otherwise stated, the periodicals' reading level is junior high and high school. (NQ)
