    Disclosure I received this book for free from Goodreads This is probably the most thorough, honest history book I have ever come across, aside from the works of Mr Howard Zinn I recommend it for all students at an appropriate comprehension level It s a necessary companion to balance out any traditional currently taught Euro centric history studies If one is in the States, then as far as I m concerned this should be considered de rigueur It will definitely provide food for both thought discussion It will also assist in providing a broader complete idea of the underpinnings of society, how we all arrived at the current spot we are occupying in the history of the world This is a history we need to hear Well written, chock full of information, explanations, well placed question prompts for those all important thoughts discussions.

    4.5 stars, rounded up.I am not an educator, but I come from a family of teachers and I will be recommending this book to all of them This book tackles a difficult, mammoth subject and makes it accessible to middle grade readers there are references such as when you were in elementary school, and some of the activities might be too juvenile for high school students, but I ll leave that to educators to decide.My copy is an ARC, so there are some typos and text errors that should be fixed in published copies But overall the authors did an excellent job breaking down the subjects into comprehensive chapters and providing historical context to give students a fuller vision of history It provides necessary information to convey the brutality Indigenous people have faced without being melodramatic or overly gory This book should be required reading.

    While this book will not be an exhaustive history of Indigenous peoples in America, it is an excellent overview and springboard for learning that helps to put different aspects of history into a coherent narrative And what is it that enables the authors to have a coherent narrative It is the beliefs, values, and perspectives that arise out of manifest destiny, the doctrine of discovery and white supremacist world views The authors articulate the origins and functions of these beliefs in a clear, direct, concise, and well researched way with direct text evidence They insightfully shed light on how these beliefs have shaped this country for nearly 400 years While this book is an incredibly important read for young people, it s just as powerful for adults in its ability to provide a fuller understanding of history, dispel myths and expose difficult aspects of history and current events that need to be grappled with My suspicion is that the 1 and 2 star ratings with no reviews are from people who are not ready to do this work.

    nonfiction history indigenous native American perspectives As I expected, there was much I didn t know about American history that really should be included in our textbooks This was pretty comprehensive sometimes a bit overwhelmingly so and unfortunately, it frequently read like a dry textbook I could only manage about a chapter a day, but it s still worthwhile an important resource for information that we just don t get in very many places, though I don t think it s necessarily great for most kids casual reading I would recommend it to kids who like history, or kids with a special interest in Native Americans and First Nations.I really liked the suggested reading list on the back, featuring Indigenous authors as opposed to outsiders pretending to know about native customs and containing various errors and stereotypes bias and will need to add some of them to my to read list I am including the entire list below because I think this online community of readers should have easy access to it as well note that I ve only so far read a few of these, but I figure the authors recommended list is much better than anything I could come up with on my own

    I highly recommend this account of United States history because it s told from the perspective of peoples who often are erased from our national stories It s also well written and engaging, with sidebars that invite young readers to think critically and take action for social justice This book dismantles the notion that North America was an uninhabited wilderness when European colonizers arrived in what is now the United States Descriptions of complex pre Columbian civilizations are followed by accounts of organized campaigns to subjugate Indigenous populations in the interest of turning their lands over to white colonizers It ends with an account of the Standing Rock protests in the 2010s, and draws parallels between this nation s previous treatment of Native Americans and its response to their demands to protect their land and water supplies from an oil pipeline.

    Review copy purchasedUnited States history has been taught and told from the dominant cultural perspective since its founding In this book readers are given the opportunity to see this history from an Indigenous view Roxanne Dunbar Ortiz shared this history in the original book several years ago and now Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza have created a version for young people and educators These are many facts and stories that have been left out or glossed over in typical history books and media For many, the facts contained in this book will be completely new and perhaps even shocking Many times, history texts aim to show U.S in a positive light and don t point out some of the evils the government and others have perpetrated in the name of such things as progress or safety There are also key concepts like sovereignty that have been omitted by design or out of ignorance Many people in our country do not understand what the word sovereignty means in regards to Indigenous nations This book and the original work share the history that people need to know in order to understand how our country arrived at present day with situations like the Standing Rock protests Readers of this book will see that so many things make sense once the blanks have been filled in and the missing puzzle pieces are out on the table.Even the names of things, which may seem like a small thing to some, tell a different story than the one many have heard before The Massacre at Little Big Horn rather than the battle is not what most non Native people have been taught This is one example of how the framing of events have been shaping how we understand the past Another example is when it is revealed that White people were getting paid for Native scalps Texts written by White authors have been omitting important details like this for far too long There are far too many instances of issues like this to note them all.Debbie Reese and Jean Mendoza have not simply adapted the words and provided facts from the original book, but they have included additional visuals and even importantly, activities and prompts These activities and prompts will help make the information understandable They will also help readers to become critical consumers of information and resources of all kinds Mendoza and Reese provide facts and then encourage the reader to question what we read and consider how the words we read shapes our thinking and how we perceive the world.Recommendation Get it now This is a look into the history of this country that all people should experience Teachers of all levels should be aware of this history along with young people.

    This is a survey of the history of Indigenous Peoples in the US In order to have the scope that it does in both time and places, it doesn t delve into extensive detail but rather gives of a summary of events While I would have loved to have had detail, it is quite useful as a starting point I now have a base of knowledge that I can use as a starting point to find out This book seems to be at a good level for middle and high school readers I ve had the adult version on my reading list for a while, but when this one popped up, I decided to start here I ll be interested to see how it compares to the original version for adults.

    An Indigenous Peoples History of the United States for Young People by Debbie Reese is a well researched history of those who lived here before the United States came into being I was a little disappointed in the lack of detail of the actual history of the People However, for the size of the book, it accomplished a lot of the purpose for which it was written I think it makes students want to search further into the United States History Being a kind of history buff, myself I have studied many histories of the nation and found this a nice addition to my library Thanks to Goodreads for the chance to read this interesting history book.
