We Are the Many
is a beautiful picture book, telling stories
from the lives of 13 Native Americans. The time frames range from
Tisquantum (Squanto), who helped the Pilgrims, to Sherman Alexie, a present-day
author. The author chose a single incident from each person’s life
and presents it on one page, with a beautiful painting on the facing page.
You will be amazed at the wide range of people represented. This is
a wonderful introduction to the topic.
