Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz - An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young Readers — in co

Family

The difficult and complex history of the United States involves colonialism, genocide, slavery, and white supremacy—but that's not the perspective taught in most history classes. This thorough and groundbreaking work of nonfiction, adapted by Jean Mendoza and Debbie Reese, challenges the myths that have erased Indigenous peoples from the popular national consciousness. Accessible prose guides readers through the history of what is now known as the US, highlighting the impacts of colonialism and the constant Indigenous resistance to it. Extensive back matter includes book recommendations and a list of significant Indigenous women. Ages 12 and up. In Conversation with James W. Loewen, author of Lies My Teacher Told Me (Adult and Young Readers' editions)
