"Going to Indian Territory": Attitudes toward Native Americans in Little House on the Prairie.
Heldrich, Philip
Great Plains Quarterly, v20 n2 p99-109 Spr 2000
Efforts to ban the "Little House on the Prairie" series because of racist depictions of American Indians seem a knee-jerk reaction to a complex text. Teachers can use the books to develop an appreciation of American Indians and their history and to promote understanding of the disparate and conflicting attitudes of the nation when the books were written.
