“Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.” -- Chief Seattle

“Being Indian is an attitude, a state of mind, a way of being in harmony with all things and all beings. It is allowing the heart to be the distributor of energy on this planet; to allow feelings and sensitivities to determine where energy goes; bringing aliveness up from the Earth and from the Sky, putting it in and giving it out from the heart.”  – Brooke Medicine Eagle


November is Native American Heritage Month. To celebrate Native American Heritage Month , our library presents a recommended reading/viewing list of Native Americans, emphasizing on Pacific Northwest Indigenous Tribes/Nations. 

You can also find these materials on our Recommended Reading display rack on the Plaza Level of the library. Please borrow and enjoy them!
