Native American Voices

By Happy Valley Librarians
October 27, 2023

We have gathered some of the finest new indigenous fiction and nonfiction to celebrate Native American Heritage Month.

Within the pages of these books, you will find diverse perspectives on contemporary and historical Indigenous experiences. With over 500 Federally recognized American Indian tribes and Alaska Native villages, there are many stories to discover. There are biographies of notable Native Americans and nonfiction titles that present American history from an Indigenous viewpoint.  History is generally written by the conquerors. When those whose lands and cultures were conquered are able to tell their stories, a more complex view of our collective history emerges.  In addition to historical subjects, many authors are writing about aspects of the contemporary indigenous experience. We invite you to discover a new author, and to continue to read and share Native books all year long!
