ALL Native Books

Index by subject, age-level, tribe, TITLE, individual reviews


At present, as of the last update here, less than 1/2 of the ADULT reading level book, and none of the art-craft-cookbooks have been entered in the database from which these index lists are generated. All reviews are (in no particular order) in the long textfiles, but only the indexed ones hav individual reviews.

The thumbs-down icon marks a book which is disrecommended, generally for some form of racism, factual inaccuracies, misleading. Thumbs-up books are very highly recommended, a school library must-have if possible, though this is far more subjective for children's books than the thumbs-down. See SYMBOLS page for more.

Often there's a longer review-essay accessible on these indexes to individual review-files than the paragraph or 2 in the long text age-level files. (See the illustrated review of COLONIALISM ON TRIAL for example.) The primary users of these reviewed books are seen as Native schools or students (and their teachers). Secondarily, we believe that good, rather than (often popular) bad books should be used for non-Indian students. A major objective here is to educate readers of all the reviews -- who (one hopes) will get and read some of the best books -- to learn more about native history, culture, values (and facts) and become able to make good book selections with limited book budget funds.
