I know many of you are planning eclipse events this summer, some as part of your summer reading program, and thought you would want to know about some Native people’s perspective. The letter from Naomi Bishop, president of the American Indian Library Association, also includes a list of Indigenous STEM resources.—Katie

Good morning,

American Indians in Children's Literature is pleased to share a letter from Naomi Bishop, currently the president of the American Indian Library Association, about the upcoming solar eclipse. As she noted, many libraries are developing programming around it. She offers some resources and cautions, too, with respect to Native peoples and the eclipse.


Please share with teachers and fellow librarians.
