Give It Your Best! Profiles of Native American Athletes.
Coker, Russell; Kast, Sherry
The purpose of this publication is to encourage and enhance the participation of American Indian and Alaska Native athletes in organized sports at the secondary, collegiate, and professional levels. Profiles are given of 37 young Native American women and men who are succeeding in competitive athletics, as well as in the classroom. One page is devoted to each profile, which includes a picture, a quote from the athlete, and a description of the athlete's athletic and scholastic accomplishments and awards. A sidebar on each page lists the athlete's tribe, sport, school, and professional team, where applicable. Also included are a list of 13 benefits that can be derived from participating in sports, a two-page profile of Southwestern Indian Polytechnic Institute's cross-country and marathon programs, a profile of the United National Indian Tribal Youth basketball team, and a four-page guide on nutrition and fitness.
