Description

"Going beyond the story of America as a country "discovered" by a few brave men in the "New World," Indigenous human rights advocate Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz reveals the roles that settler colonialism and policies of American Indian genocide played in forming our national identity. The original academic text is fully adapted by renowned curriculum experts Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza, for middle-grade and young adult readers to include discussion topics, archival images, original maps, recommendations for further reading, and other materials to encourage students, teachers, and general readers to think critically about their own place in history"--

RGG: The introductory chapters describing the policies and philosophies that rationalized Native genocide are fascinating. Later chapters recount relatively well-known history. The final chapter that weaves together current resistance with the paradigms of the introductory chapters seems a little thin.
