Publishers are in the business of making money. Do you really think they are going to weigh 0. It doesn't make financial sense if the publishers think the book will sell to focus on such a small group. I'm saying they shouldn't, but they probably won't. Anon, It's true that publishers are in the business of making money.
But your conclusion -- that they are not going to care about accurate, non-stereotypical representations of Native people because of the relatively small population of Native people in the US -- is based on leaving out a key point. That is: good teachers and librarians care, whether they are Native or not.
Young people don't like to be lied to, and they too -- Native or not -- appreciate books and media that don't misinform them. So the market for accurate representations extends beyond the size of the Native population. Increasingly, reviewers of books for children including this blog, Reading While White, De Colores, and similar resources are aware of what's optimal and what's not, and will let the public know when a book presents mistaken ideas about Native people.
Authors and illustrators who want to be known for accurate, thoughtful portrayals of all human beings, pay attention to the reviews and the comments of those who share books with kids. And even the larger publishers are sometimes paying attention, especially if they have managed to hire principled and knowledgeable editors etc.

It's not a landslide of awareness; more like a sometimes glacially slow ripple effect. But people, including publishers, are more aware of issues related to representations of Native Americans than they've been in the past. So this particular book may be about lost causes, but the work of this blog is not. Post a Comment. I read a NetGalley copy of it, and it is on my Not Recommended list. Here's the description of the book: A band of orphan avengers. A cursed stone. A horde of zombie outlaws.
With his home destroyed and his family lost, Keech will have to use the lessons he learned from Pa Abner to hunt down the powerful Char Stone. Luckily, he has the help of a ragtag team of orphans.
The White man who took Keech in when his parents were killed is the one who "taught" him Osage culture, but the things Keech says and thinks throughout this book sound like a White Man's Indian see Berkhofer's book of that title. Share this page:. Projects In Development 3 Videotapes.
