Developing Native American Collections

This was most helpful to me because it addressed an important aspect of my job. I learned to identify bias and evaluate Native American literature for stereotypes (intentional and unintentional) -- both in text and in illustrations. I was particularly intrigued by Julie Cajune's request to respect the tradition of only sharing coyote stories during the winter months. I would be happy to honor that tradition, and I wanted to share it with those of you, who like me, didn't know.
