UAA and APU are pleased to present three Books of the Year for 2008-09. Together, these books address critical issues, correct historical inaccuracies, and authentically represent Alaskan Native cultures, communities, and peoples.
Together, these three books provide a strong set for teaching, and an introduction to the range of voices and issues related to Alaska Native cultures and communities today. All three are non-fiction works that address critical issues, correct historical and other inaccuracies, and authentically represent the Alaskan Native cultures and peoples. The companion reader offers links to selected creative writing by Alaska Natives. The books are short, appropriate for many different disciplines, and accessible to students from many backgrounds.
