Integrity in Teaching Native American Literature.
Stensland, Anna Lee
The 1973 and 1979 editions of "Literature by and about the American Indian," published by the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), are examined in this paper for titles by native American writers that are appropriate for junior high and high school students. A few of the books recommended in the NCTE publications remain out of print, and while many of the other titles are highly recommended, they either are written by Anglo writers or are autobiographies as told to an Anglo writer. Many of the titles cited are briefly summarized, and the paper concludes with a bibliography of works by native American authors only. (HTH)
