Native American Heritage Month. I put together some resources on a few Native poets and writers which you can find here.
Eric is my friend, who I grew up with. I love that he’s such a prolific writer and his books are in my library. Make sure you check out his talks.
You can also see some Native dancing, beadwork, and other information on Native and Indigenous Americans by checking out my November calendar here.
Something a lot of people don’t know about me is that I was previously a counselor, case manager and social worker. One of the places I worked during that time specifically served the urban Native population. I learned a tremendous amount when I worked there and made some life-long friends. As a result, I’m a big advocate for indigenous people and the issues they face. I tried to choose authoritative and accurate resources that don’t perpetuate stereotypes. I hope you’ll check them out.
