We are excited to announce the release of Save Indigenous History: An Activity Book for Children. This free 30 page book is full of activities, coloring pages, and educational material that teach kids about respectful visitation of archaeological sites.
Save Indigenous History features original art from five Indigenous artists and teaches kids in grades 3–6 about archaeology and how to visit cultural sites with respect.
Embark on a Journey: Filled with engaging activities, fascinating stories, and interactive challenges, it's the perfect way for children to learn about archaeology and the cultural heritage of Indigenous communities.
Ignite Creativity: Through coloring pages, puzzles, and hands-on activities, children can express their creativity while learning about the unique tools, artifacts, and traditions that have shaped Indigenous cultures for generations.
Foster Respect and Understanding: By introducing young minds to the rich tapestry of Indigenous archaeology and cultural heritage, we aim to cultivate respect and a sense of stewardship.

Native Perspective. Native Voices. Native News.
We launched Native News Online because the mainstream media often overlooks news that is important is Native people. We believe that everyone in Indian Country deserves equal access to news and commentary pertaining to them, their relatives and their communities. That's why the story you’ve just finished was free — and we want to keep it that way, for all readers. We hope you'll consider making a donation to support our efforts so that we can continue publishing more stories that make a difference to Native people, whether they live on or off the reservation. Your donation will help us keep producing quality journalism and elevating Indigenous voices. Any contribution of any amount — big or small — gives us a better, stronger future and allows us to remain a force for change.
