American Indians in Children’s Literature is a blog that is maintained by the amazing Debbie Reese. Her site is full of highly useful information regarding children’s literature that is by or about American Indians. She started the blog in 2006 and since then has become a go-to source for many librarians and educators when it comes to the evaluation of books including American Indians (or representations of sovereign nations and peoples).
Some highlights of the resources you will find while visiting AICL include:
- Best Books
- Native Writers, Illustrators, Scholars, Activists…on Twitter
- Revisions to Racism in Books
- Books that Reference Racist Classics
Plus, I even made her blog back in 2013 thanks to Debbie video-chatting with our Tribal Libraries, Archives, and Museums (TLAM) class at the Information School @ the University of Wisconsin – Madison with the post, Indigenous Knowledge and Children’s Literature.
Have a wonderful day and happy reading!
