"Dangerous Indians": Evaluating the Depiction of Native Americans in Selected Trade Books.
Sanchez, Tony R.
Urban Education, v36 n3 p400-25 May 2001
Examined trade books regarding their accuracy in depicting Native Americans. Criteria embodied an authenticity guideline based on Five Great Values (e.g., generosity and sharing, coexisting with nature, and courage). Over half of the books had at least satisfactory depictions. Bias and stereotyping persisted enough to recommend using the guideline to help educators identify these problems in instructional materials. (SM)
