Launched in 2006 by Debbie Reese, a Native tribally enrolled at Nambe Owingeh, American Indians in Children’s Literature (AICL) is a regularly updated personal blog committed to helping readers select books that accurately portray Native people and nations. The AICL offers many valuable resources: critical reviews of books for all ages featuring portrayals of Native people, and whether the book is or isn’t recommended; articles covering varying topics related to Native identity and challenges, lesson help, lists of various Native professionals and contacts, and links to other helpful websites and resources.
