Giving Native Americans a Voice
Listening to my children learning about the first Thanksgiving, I realized how one sided the stories are. But how can I teach my children about the real history of Thanksgiving and the pilgrims? We can teach our children by giving Native Americans voices and letting them tell their own stories.
Use Thanksgiving as a chance to learn more about North America's history and culture from the indigenous points of view.
Below we've included links to children's books by Native authors.
Another way is to look at a map of tribal nations together and learning more about the history of the land we live on.
