Traci Sorell (Cherokee Nation) and Lee Francis IV (Laguna Pueblo)
Jesse Hummingbird (Cherokee) and Michelle Sisneros (Santa Clara/Laguna/Navajo)
Many people think of the United States as one country and one land, but within its borders are many nations—sovereign Native American nations whose citizens have dual citizenship. In Volume 1 of this series, Native American authors Traci Sorell (Cherokee) and Lee Francis IV (Laguna Pueblo) take readers on a contemporary tour of their respective nations. Readers learn the histories of their people, famous citizens, traditional stories, as well as details about tribal life today—including their systems of government, education, and commerce.
