Spring 2014 INCOL Workshop – American Indians in Children’s and Young Adult Literature

Wednesday, April 23rd
Northwest Museum of Arts & Culture
2316 West First Avenue Spokane, Washington
Eric A. Johnston Auditorium

Indians! In most people, the word summons images of “wild” Indians living off the land or threatening courageous pioneers. Such depic-tions are inaccurate and biased, and unfortunately, persistent in the American imagination. Join us as we create awareness of their pervasiveness, and learn about Native authors who write books that accurately portray Native peoples.
