2017-18Thunder Boy Jr.Sherman AlexieYuyi MoralesLittle Brown and Company2016NOTE: When discussing Native American people and their names/naming ceremonies, teachers are
sometimes interested in having students create their own Native American names. This trivializes Native
American history and culture and also lacks the understanding and recognition that there are over 500
federally recognized Native American tribes/nations in the U.S., each with distinct cultural traditions,
languages and naming practices within them. Unfortunately, in the book, the author does not specify
the nation/tribe to which the family identifies so it lacks that specificity and may convey the message
that all tribes have the same naming traditions and ceremonies. To learn more, read Debbie Reese’s
Towards a Common Understanding of Native Peoples in the U.S. (or, Why Alexie’s THUNDER BOY JR.
Needs a Note to Readers)
