Come and learn about a new partnership between the MN Department of Education's Office of Indian Education, State Library Services, children's literature experts, MLIS students, and tribal communities. This project--the MN American Indian Children's Literature Collection--is a curated collection of outstanding children's books by and about Native people with emphasis on tribes from Minnesota. Librarians and educators can enhance their local collections and curriculum using the resource list this partnership created. During this session, you will receive resource recommendations across content areas and reading levels, gain practical insight in how to evaluate representation of American Indians in children's literature, and learn how this project came together.
