Sealaska Heritage Institute Points to American Indians in Children's Literature

On Tuesday, March 18th, 2014, the blog for the Sealaska Heritage Institute pointed readers to American Indians in Children's Literature as a user friendly source to find information that can help schools and communities improve on what they offer to their youth. From their site:

"The Sealaska Heritage Institute was founded in 1980 to promote cultural diversity and cross-cultural understanding. The institute is governed by a Board of Trustees and guided by a Council of Traditional Scholars. Its mission is to perpetuate and enhance Tlingit, Haida, and Tsimshian cultures of Southeast Alaska." 

Read their post about AICL: Native American Image in Children's Literature

And here's a screen shot of the page. I'm sharing it here because it means a great deal to me for AICL to be recognized by the institute. I use materials at their site a great deal as I review children's books set in Alaska.
