Today marks Native American Day, one of many celebrations of Indigenous and Native American people that occurs throughout the fall in the U.S.—Indigenous Peoples’ Day is the second week of October and Native American Heritage Day is the day after Thanksgiving. Of course, one doesn’t need to wait until a specific day or change in season to dive into the rich and often painful history of the land that so many of us currently inhabit. Below, we’ve pulled together over 50 Native American childrens books written and illustrated by Indigenous people. Naturally, the stories are as varied as the folks who author them. While some are filled with the tragic truths of colonization, others are beautiful and poetic celebrations of culture. We encourage you to dive into these book with your children early and often—year-round!
