This product is a must for school Native American research. My students and I have made good use as a research tool.

Great little BOOK! I very informative.

I disagree with the other reviewer in several things. It is simple- but it is intended for little kids. Unfortunately, the book is full of errors- including some major errors in the photographs. Some of the photos are good- but the "Hopi Kachina dancers" are actually Apache Gahn Dancers (Mountain Spirit or "crown" dancers), it implies that Hopi go only as high as Community College, it makes statements about Hopi religious beliefs that should NOT be discussed in a book for children- unless you think Hopi kids don't read books! I found so many errors it actually got funny if it were not that people actually believe these books!

While it's imperative that we teach our children about other cultures this book does not offer enough details to do that. It glosses over what makes these Native-Americans different from other tribes in the desert of the Southern United States and how their culture developed. It is too simple and does not ask the reader to take part in the experience.
