Anthologies and short story collections are wonderful classroom assets. These volumes offer multiple Native authors in one location to allow for more diverse Indigenous representation. Each tribal Nation has its own unique culture, traditions, and stories; and anthologies and collections compile a variety of these experiences into a singular volume.
Whether used as a whole or offered as essays, excerpts, and selections, these titles offer the opportunity to make Native voices more accessible for students. By choosing a selection from one author, or one essay, a narrative can often be read in class and discussed in the same session. Short stories and anthologies can often be more accessible to readers, as instead of focusing on reading an entire book, the student can read a story or selection at a time.
This list includes anthologies that contain short story compilations, multimedia collections, fiction and nonfiction. Many stories are often cross-disciplinary and can fulfill curriculum requirements of multiple subjects.
