Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices by Lisa Charleyboy and Mary Beth Leatherdale 125 pages

"A wide-ranging and emotionally potent collection of poems, photography, interviews, and artwork featuring dozens of [contemporary] indigenous artists and writers from across North America. The graphics-intensive format gives the project the feel of a magazine or yearbook as the contributors tackle stereotypes (three girls offer perspectives growing up with Disney’s Pocahontas); discuss their careers in the arts, activism, and other areas; and reflect on their place in the culture at large, despite ongoing discrimination and other challenges."

**for more mature, older students as some pieces contain more mature content.
