Native Literature

Native Reading Recommendations

Native literature is something that is often missing from academic, public, and personal libraries. Native literature is just that, literature that is written by Native Americans.

There are many genres and categories of Native Literature available. Native authors write everything from Traditional/Western ecological journals, young adult novels, high fantasy novels and everything in between. We offer Native literature recommendations to put them on your reading list, and to bring them to the spotlight if they weren’t already.
