In celebration and in honor of the Lower Muskogee Creek Tribe and Georgia Tribe of Eastern Cherokee and of indigenous peoples across the world we wish you a joyful Indigenous Peoples’ Day!
Celebrate with your kiddo by checking out some incredible books by Native Americans and Indigenous peoples. Every year the American Indian Library Association honors the very best writing and illustrations by Indigenous peoples of North America with their American Indian Youth Literature Award. These books “present Indigenous North American peoples in the fullness of their humanity” and are accompanied by beautiful illustrations and artwork.
You can also celebrate Indigenous People’s Day by watching this storytime together of “We Are Grateful – Otsaliheliga” by Traci Sorell.
