Re: Native American/children's garden


 There is a good resource list that seems to be reliable and
accurate at
http://www.hanksville.org/NAresources/
You may want to look over the site. At one point they reviewed
a wonderful sounding book on teaching children about Native
American Gardens. I've spent an hour looking for it. When I
find it, I'll post it. I meant to buy it. I run our homeschool
group's library.
     I have not completely reviewed but did buy it: you might
want to find a copy of Jospeh Bruchac's "Native Plant Stories".
I'm sure not about accuracy. I have to have time to read it
before commenting. Nothing objectionable from an Indigenous
American's  point of view that I've seen yet.
