  1. Yes, a great resource! Very nice. One of the most important attributes of modern literature about indigenous peoples, for adults and children, is to present them as living communities. There’s history and there’s contemporary culture. Indigenous people don’t ‘live’ in museums. As Liz suggests, the narrative portraying them as an exterminated people of the past who somehow deserved to be destroyed was just awful. We won’t even mention how horrible films were ‘back then’ either!
