Indigenous Children’s Picture Books

Indigenous Children’s Picture Books

A list of Recommended Indigenous Children’s Picture Books

Dr. Judith Scott and Donna Scott

November 2020

Since this is Native American Heritage Month, and the Thanksgiving holiday and Native American Heritage Day is approaching, we thought it would be useful to compile a list of Children’s Picture Books written by and about Indigenous communities for use in your classrooms. Please note that most of them would also lend themselves to discussions with students in older grades. As we are Tsalagi (Cherokee), several of the books are written by and about the Tsalagi (Cherokee) people.  We want to highlight two books in particular that you might find useful in the coming week:

 

Sorell, Traci (2018) We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga

Swamp, Chief Jake (1997) Giving thanks: A Native American Good Morning Message.
