MN Native chapters include:
-excerpt from Waterlilly by Ella Cara Deloria (Dakota/Sioux)
-excerpt from Night Flying Woman by Ignatia Broker (Ojibwe)
-excerpt from Black Elk Speaks (Oglala Lakota/Sioux) and more!
Along w/ Lang Arts standards, this text would be a good resource for the Soc Studies ones as well.
*Some mature historical content. This would be an excellent resource for both the Lang Arts and Soc Standards regarding pre-Columbus history (thriving governments, trade systems, art, land use, agricultural practices, etc) of Native people. I suggest using this at 4th grade and above. Great pictures accompanying the text.
