Debby Slier's LOVING ME American Indians in Children's Literature (AICL)

Debby Slier's Loving Me is a delightful board book! Published in 2013 by Star Bright Books, it is definitely one I'll be recommending!

Here's the cover:



The very last page in the book tells us the woman and baby on the cover are Shoshone Bannock. Indeed, with that page we learn that the other photographs in the book are of children and family members who are Lakota Sioux, Navajo, Iroquois, and Potawatomi.

On the first page, we see a mom and baby. The text is "My mother loves me." That pattern is repeated over the rest of the book. A dad, a brother, a sister, an aunt, an uncle, a grandma, a grandpa, and a great grandma... embracing a child. They're clad in a range of clothing, from jeans and t-shirts to traditional clothing, but all of it in the day-to-day life of the individuals being shown. Slier's photo essay is a terrific mirror for Native kids, and, it'll help children and adults who aren't Native see us as in the fullness of our lives as Native people.

I heartily recommend Slier's Loving Me, published by Star Bright Books.

Klinika Collective's Statement After Saturday's Attack by Neo-Nazis in Prague Aboriginal News Group Newswire

Klinika Collective's Statement After Saturday's Attack by Neo-Nazis in Prague - Neonazis attacked Klinika. One person was hurt, others were in danger. Activists assume there’s a link between islamophobic demonstrations that were held today and visited by thousands of people. Klinika collective is not afraid and is going to continue its activities. Klinika also calls on people attending such demonstrations to realize whom they are supporting by doing that.

On Saturday February 6th, after demonstrations of Block against Islam (BPI), Pegida and nationalists lead by Adam B. Bartoš, a group of ~20 neonazi hooligans attacked Autonomous Social Center Klinika in the Žižkov neighborhood of Prague. It seems that the attack was held by the same group that attacked the pro-refugee demonstration “Solidarity without borders” with cobblestones and iron bars, and then people returning from the demonstration on Main Railway Station (Hlavní nádraží). The attack happened approximately 30 minutes after that group took a tram from Main Railway Station to Žižkov.

Each year on June 25, Oglala Lakota families at Pine Ridge gather to celebrate the Lakota people’s victory at the Battle of the Greasy Grass, where, in 1876, as Oglala author and activist Debra White Plume says, “Custer wore an Arrow Shirt.”

“Warriors get ready,” the announcer calls. “Be safe, and thank your horse when you’re done.” The warriors, mostly teens, race off to find and...
