An Indigenous Peoples' History of the United States for Young People  by Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz  

 

 

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz is a scholar and activist and her book provides Native American perspectives that you didn't learn in your history text books.  From genocide campaigns to theft of goods and property to broken and ignored treaties she takes the reader through numerous events, laws, and political mythologies that have stripped indigenous people of their religion, homeland, rights, and freedom.  Actually, I should have used the current tense for Dunbar-Ortiz presents compelling information that such acts are part of today and not just the past.  The injustices will be carried into tomorrow unless fundamental changes to government and national values are implemented.  She tells the reader what changes are needed.

The book is well-written and researched.  It is different from what most Anglos think they know about history.  It is hard-hitting, provocative, and daylights a part of our country's story that needs to be better known.  You'll see where you fit into this picture.
