Books to Read on Indigenous Peoples’ Day

Indigenous People have faced devastating injustices – and despite it all, they have made profound contributions to U.S. society. So, take some time to educate yourself by reading literature and learn about the resilience and beauty of Native American Culture. Here are three books, written by independent authors, that educate readers on the Indigenous experience.
