Re: Pagan homeschooling?

My hubby is also part Native, and so is my sister (half sister), and though I never looked hard enough to know for sure, I believe my father had a good percentage as well.

I have noticed that the sugar coating isn't what it used to be. If you really want to show your kids how Natives were treated way back when (and even still now in many areas and instances), find a vintage text.. but don't do it until your kids are old enough to handle it. I have one that was an elementary text that I will share with my kids come middle school age. It definitely gives me an even more bitter taste in my mouth over how the Natives were treated.

I do wish something was out there.. but I don't think there is. I know there is a man who writes books that are real and honest... I can't think of the name though
