Native American Children's Books
This list of children's books (ages 3+) by Native American authors was created by a librarian at The Seattle Public Library in conjunction with Beyond the Frame, a community-wide initiative revisiting the photographs of Edward S. Curtis and sparking conversations on Native identity, race and resilience, art and culture. The Library will be presenting exhibits and related programming throughout 2018, beginning with Living Cultures.
