The American Indian Library Association and your Saginaw Chippewa Tribal Libraries invite you to participate in the inaugural Read Native challenge. With this challenge we support and recognize our Indigenous authors, scientists, legislators, storytellers, and creators throughout the year, not just during the national Native American Heritage month. Please make sure books added are by native authors (where required) and that authors added don't just claim "Native American heritage" but identify a specific tribal affiliation. Additional non-book prompts are included in the full challenge: https://ailanet.org/readnative21/
