    Featured Children's Book

    "What does it mean to grow up Native American? There's a lot going on, and you won't read about it in a history book. Children of Native America Today includes some of the 500 Native nations and culture groups living in the United States, each with its own special heritage. Native American chldren live in the Florida Everglades, the Iowa plains, the Alaskan islands, and large cities. From traditonal Native games, dancing, and art, to baseball, snowmobiling, and Web page design, they lead active lives. Many speak a Native language along with English."

    "Bright color photographs in Children of Native America Today highlight the richness and diversity of Native lands, cultures, and daily life. A portion of the proceeds of this book are donated to the Global Fund for Children to support community-based programs for Native American children throughout the United States."

    This book can be purchased from the Global Fund for Children. They also have a companion volume Children of the U.S.A. that includes American Indian, Alaska Native, and Hawaiian children.
