A Lingering Miseducation: Confronting the Legacy of "Little Tree."
Justice, Daniel Heath
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v12 n1 p20-36 Spr 2000
The popular book, "The Education of Little Tree," written by a Ku Klux Klansman, perpetuates popular stereotypes about American Indians and advances the author's ideology about segregation and staunch individualism. This type of fraud is especially damaging to children, both White and Indian, who internalize such stereotypes as more authentic than the realities of living American Indians. (TD)
