Storytelling is integral to Indigenous societies. It has allowed the many nations of this country to continue to pass down the sacred stories of spirituality, culture, and history that are paramount for Natives to better understand themselves, and the ever-changing human and natural worlds. November is National Native American Heritage Month and in honor of this nation’s first people and their rich history, we are featuring books by Indigenous authors who continue the tradition of storytelling to explore Native identity, challenge stereotypes and historical fallacies, and to connect the past with the present.
