Focusing on American Indians, this annotated bibliography covers a variety of resources for enriching multicultural education in the elementary classroom and includes limited information about Mexican Americans, Blacks, and other cultural groups. Each of the 26 entries provides a descriptive annotation and indicates where the material can be obtained. In addition to three films, the bibliography lists curriculum guides, periodicals, coloring books, and references containing legends, games, songs, and illustrations. Regional American Indian cultures are represented and specific tribes are mentioned including Lakota, Haida, Blackfeet, and Navajo. Examples of activities appearing in the annotations are constructing a longhouse, writing a legend, role playing, dancing, building a model totem pole, translating and writing pictograph stories, creating geometrical beadwork designs, and learning traditional games.
