Lewis and Clark? Sacagawea?

Knowing that some tribes publish their own books, can any of you tell me about a children's book (tribal or small press) that is a Native perspective on Lewis and Clark? Or, Sacagawea?

I've ordered a copy of The Salish People and the Lewis and Clark Expedition, and I know about Joseph Bruchac's Sacagawea...

What else is out there?

There's GOT to be more than the 214 children's books published between 2000 and 2005... Based on reviews I'm reading of them, they're pretty standard-fare. In other words, biased against Native people...

I appreciate your help in locating these items. Please write to me directly at, or using the comment option (below).
