Native American Heritage Month

This month we celebrate the rich cultures and heritage of Native Americans. Be enlightened with books by Joy Harjo, the first Native American U.S. Poet Laureate, or award-winning author Louise Erdrich. This is also a good time to take an honest look at history. Enlarge your understanding with these books: Unworthy Republic, This Land is Their Land, and Surviving Genocide.
