There are over 6.7 million Native Americans still living in the United States today and yet, the people that have lived on these lands the longest are the people we know the least about. In this week’s episode, we explore the contemporary history of native communities through children’s literature.
Our parent guest this week is Traci Sorell, a mom of one and an enrolled citizen of the Cherokee Nation who writes poetry, fiction and nonfiction for children. In this episode, Traci talks about her books as a way for people to learn more about native people in the past and present.
