Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Greg M. Romaneck
“You might say that prejudice is the root of racism-and discrimination is its branches and leaves.” In this way Sanna defines terms she later delves into more deeply with regard to First Nation people in this analysis of bigotry toward the many tribes that live in North America. In addressing the far-reaching issues attendant to discrimination against native people, she takes a two-fold approach. First, the author defines terms and gives examples of ways in which bias has fueled hatred toward native people in Canada, Mexico, and the United States. Then Sanna incorporates interviews with individuals who describe the ways discrimination has affected them and how they react to it personally. This dualistic approach results in an insightful look at a subject of importance that is one brick in the wall of hatred and misunderstanding that represent humanity’s struggle to live together in peace. This is a fine sociological study and one that should cause its readers to reflect upon their own behavior, beliefs, and actions. Reviewer: Greg M. Romaneck; Ages 13 up.
