Synopsis

Come along on a photographic journey through America's native nations as seen through the eyes of children.

CHILDREN OF NATIVE AMERICA TODAY invites readers to explore Native nations, focusing on the children who live, learn, and play in tribal communities throughout the United States. These children celebrate a proud heritage, a rich culture, and a close-knit society. They participate in cultural activities such as totem pole carving, storytelling, and dancing at a powwow, as well as enjoying video games, going to school, and other contemporary pastimes.

A map listing the geography of the many nations and culture groups, and resources for further investigation, are included.

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these books is donated to innovative programs benefiting children around the world.
