Library Journal, v130 n5 pS41 Mar 2005
Most librarians think literacy is an important goal, but Loriene Roy, an Anishinabe (Ojibwe) enrolled on the White Earth Reservation, knows it's a harder sell among America's two million Native Americans, who associate it with a history of forced assimilation and attempts to eliminate their language and culture. Considering most tribal schools have substandard facilities, and lack librarians and adequate reading materials, it becomes an even harder sell. This article briefly discusses Loriene Roy's work as a librarian.
