What's Going On Out There...

Interesting new posts at the American Indians in Children's Literature blog.

Indian Country Today has a story about the new Washington State University report on Native American students in Washington State.

There will be a preview showing of the TV series We Shall Remain in Seattle on April 1, a special event arranged by KCTS and featuring actor Russell Means as a guest. The DVDs of the five programs will be available at the end of April, and Tracey is collecting donations so that the library can buy the set; then we'd be able to have showings for the community. Contact Tracey at x.121 if you can contribute. And of course the programs will be broadcast on PBS...

We've received a wonderful children's book about two boys who ride the rails home from boarding school. It's a true story; at the back of the book is a photo of the artist's father and uncle, who lived the story in the 1930's. Home to Medicine Mountain by Chiori Santiago and Judith Lowry is being processed, and will be available for checkout soon.
