Ancestor Approved – Intertribal Stories for Kids – Cynthia Leitich Smith

$16.99

In a series of interconnected stories, Native authors write to celebrate their cultures, heritage, and the magic that comes from gathering at a powwow. There are dancers, fry-bread cooks, t-shirt sellers, jewelry makers, and so many that are there just to see their family and friends. There’s kids who have spent their whole lives going to powwows, and kids who are going for the first time. Readers will meet: a bus full of Choctaw elders for an epic road trip (which seriously needs to become a movie); a Rez Dog who lives life unleashed; a young detective (who needs her own series); kids who are confident and secure in their Native identity; kids who are struggling to find and understand what it means to be Native; families that come in all shapes and sizes; and, most importantly, love and acceptance and encouragement.
