Celebrate the Minnesota Native American Lives Series! MHC and the Minnesota Indian Affairs Council have partnered to publish three new books written for 3rd-5th graders, all included on the American Indians in Children’s Literature Best Books list of 2020. This series shares the biographies of Dakota and Ojibwe leaders: Ella Cara Deloria, Charles Albert Bender, and Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan. Hear from youth who have read the books as they share their favorite parts and engage the authors in discussion. This lively book launch will include book giveaways and a Q&A session with the series authors.
