Did you Read Native in 2021?

Last year, the American Indian Library Association invited readers to enjoy books by Indigenous Authors for their Read Native challenge. The inaugural challenge featured 26 reading tasks to tackle throughout the year. To help participants along the way, staff from the Library's Many Nations Team had many books to recommend in a variety of categories.


Just because it's 2022 doesn't mean you still can't enjoy the challenge. Here are some book lists and titles that can help you get started.
