Shattering stereotypes

Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices
edited by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale

In this evocative anthology, Indigenous youth share their life experiences through prose, poetry, art, sports, dance and fashion. Though they face bullying, racism, and intolerance, their strength, resilience, joy, and self-confidence are clearly evident. The book is important in combatting the stereotypical images of Native people that is often perpetuated in mainstream media.

A must-have for all school and public libraries.
