Age levels are always slippery. I'm using rough categories, with the understanding that older readers can get a lot out of picture books, and because what you/I deem appropriate for any given reader depends on the reader, younger kids can read books intended for middle or high school students.

FICTION BY NON-NATIVE WRITERS
During 2014 I read a few books that have a fleeting reference to Native culture, or, a more in-depth one, that I want to include on this post about Best Books. They are:
NONFICTION BY NON-NATIVE WRITERS
- A Children's Guide to Arctic Birds written by Mia Pelletier, illustrated by Danny Christopher (added Dec 14, 2014)
Yes, just three. I'm sure there are others out there. If you know of one, let me know!
And if you want to add more than just 2014 titles, see the lists in Best Books.
