We Are Still Here!: Native American Truths Everyone Should Know

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!

Too often, Native American history is treated as a finished chapter instead of relevant and ongoing. 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.

Precise, lyrical writing presents topics including: forced assimilation (such as boarding schools), land allotment and Native tribal reorganization, termination (the US government not recognizing tribes as nations), Native urban relocation (from reservations), self-determination (tribal self-empowerment), Native civil rights, the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA), religious freedom, economic development (including casino development), Native language revival efforts, cultural persistence, and nationhood.
