November: American Indian Heritage Month

(image from 2009 Indian Health Service Heritage Site)

November is American Indian Heritage Month.

Various links of interest, in no particular order:

The Creation of National American Indian and Alaska Native Heritage Month (via Indian Health Services)

The National Museum of the American Indian, especially its Education page.

American Indians in Children's Literature by Debbie Reese, which should be read all year round, but November is a good time to remind you to add it to your must-read lists.

Teacher and Librarian Resources for Children's and YA Books with Native Themes (again, an all year not just November resource) from Cynthia Leitich Smith

Native Youth Literature widget from JacketFlap; thanks to Cynthia Leitich Smith for reminding me of this widget, which is on my sidebar for the month of November.

Native American Heritage Month resources from the Library of Congress.

Readergirlz is also celebrating; they are spotlighting Sweetgrass Basket by Marlene Carvell.
