Very useful article.

However, I feel that you are doing the principle of multi-culturalism a disservice by including, of all things, "Forrest" Carter's Education of Little Tree.

Please tell me you weren't already aware that the book is the hoax of Asa Carter, an ex-Klansman and political speechwriter who wrote "Segregation now, segregation tomorrow, segregation forever!" Please tell me you didn't notice the book's "Noble Savage" stereotyping and racist undercurrents! (Education doesn't even get its Cherokee traditions and words right.)

As such, Education is a poor choice for teaching kids about Cherokee/NA culture and cultural acceptance/tolerance. Why not replace the title with a legitimate book about NA life?
