Debbie Reese Portrait“Super Indian Volume One” has been selected as one of five books in a reading initiative curated by Dr. Debbie Reese and the First Nations Development Institute. “Native Reads” aims to bring attention to Native representation in books for youth.

The program also features teaching guides for each release and helps educators guide students to authentic works about Native people in time for Native American Heritage Month in November.

“We feel it is important to provide an opportunity for people to learn more about Native experiences from a culturally and historically accurate perspective,” said First Nations President & CEO Michael E. Roberts (Tlingit). “We have a responsibility to educate others by sharing authentic resources about Native histories, cultures and peoples.  To that end, we are offering a list that we refer to as  #NativeReads.  All of the books are written by Native authors and have been vetted by a Native expert.”
