November was officially recognized as National Native American Heritage Month and Alaska Native Heritage Month in 1990 when President George H.W. Bush signed it into Public Law. There are some amazing and breathtaking books for children that share the beliefs, journey, histories and struggles of Native Americans and also Alaskan Natives. As always, I round up the best-of-the-best of the books, activities and crafts that I have found over the course of the week and share them with my readers. ENJOY!
