Native Americans of the Northeast

by Sheila Wyborny

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 4-8-Starting off with the Paleo-Indians following the woolly mammoths from Asia to what is now Alaska, this book throws Indian tribal names at readers and then lumps them together under two cultures, the Iroquois and Algonquian tribes. It then gives a few broad accomplishments such as growing corn, beans, and squash. The author briefly tries to interpret religion for the northeastern tribes saying they all believed in a "supreme being." The book lacks authenticity and a Native voice, and will perpetuate a belittling stereotypical generic outlook on Native achievements, accomplishments, and people.-Marlette Grant-Jackson, Humboldt State University, Arcata, CA Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
