During the HASL talk and at other sessions with school and public librarians and LIS students, Dr. Reese shared insights aligned with the #WeNeedDiverseBooks initiative. In particular, Reese discussed the misrepresentation of American Indians in children’s literature that obscures the diversity that exists across 566 federally recognized sovereign tribal nations.

Mahalo nui loa Dr. Reese and all HASL conference organizers, speakers, and participants for sharing outstanding work.
