Throughout the year, it is important to recognize the contributions, achievements and cultures of others. Not only does this promote diversity, but it also helps us learn a more comprehensive history.
October 11th is observed as Indigenous Peoples’ Day in the United States. Indigenous People are those who are native to a specific place, or in other words, lived in a place before others, such as settlers arrived. Other countries recognize this day on different dates.
Despite where yours may fall on the calendar, we wanted to take a moment to share a few of our favorite books written by Indigenous authors that you can read with your students to illuminate Indigenous voices today or any other point during the year.
