We Are Still Here!

We Are Still Here!
Native American Truths Everyone Should Know
Coming April 20, 2021. Preorder today!

By: Traci Sorell / Illustrated by: Frané Lessac

Native Nations say: We are still here!

Too often, Native American history is treated as a finished chapter instead of an ongoing story. This companion book to the award-winning We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga offers readers everything they never learned in school about Native American people's past, present, and future.

Twelve Native American kids present historical and contemporary laws, policies, struggles, and victories in Native life, each with a powerful refrain: We are still here! Precise, lyrical writing presents topics including forced assimilation, land allotment and Native tribal reorganization, termination, relocation, self-determination, Native civil rights, the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), religious freedom, economic development, Native language revival efforts, cultural persistence, and nationhood.

Maximum quantity available reached.
