Bright, engaging photographs accompany this overview of various Native American nations/ tribes.

This book would be a good inclusion to a fourth grade (or older) classroom and could serve as a basic reference and introduction to Native American populations.

CHILDREN OF NATIVE AMERICA TODAY invites readers to explore Native nations, focusing on the children who live, learn, and play in tribal communities throughout the United States. These children celebrate a proud heritage, a rich culture, and a close-knit society. They participate in cultural activities such as totem pole carving, storytelling, and dancing at a powwow, as well as enjoying video games, going to school, and other contemporary pastimes.

The story line is not particularly riveting but the content is excellent and respectful of a deep cultural heritage in America. The book uses photos of contemporary native children doing activities and just "hanging out". It differentiates between the tribes which can be very diverse. One of the horrors of reservations wss when the US Government lumped Native Americans into one group, sometimes putting arch enemies on the same reservation such as with the Arapaho and the Shoshone.

This book describes how the tribes live in today's world. Many of the tribes still practice the dance, gathering and hunting customs of their ancestors, however some of the tribes simply use their ancestors techniques to make baskets or clothing for special events. Some of the tribes have also made deals with the government, giving them some of the food they catch or gather so they can continue to live the the way they are.
