We're celebrating by showcasing a collection of books by Native American authors, and about Native American history, that we hope you'll enjoy; just click the cover to access the ebook.

We recommend researching, contextualizing, and examining the purpose of an acknowledgement when engaging in this practice. (Colorado College)
