About the Book

You may already be familiar with the names Pocahontas, Sacagawea, and Crazy Horse. But how did they become so well known? What was their early life like? How was their relationship with the early settlers to the United States? The 15 profiles in this reader go beyond the legend to tell the real stories.

This book takes a look at these and other important Native Americans. You will learn about Sequoyah, the inventor of the Cherokee alphabet. You will explore the incredible life of Susan La Flesche Picotte, the first Native American doctor in the United States. You will meet Sitting Bull, the legendary warrior who fought tirelessly against the U.S. government to protect native lands. You will also read about more contemporary Native Americans such as Olympian Jim Thorpe, astronaut John Herrington, and poet Joy Harjo.

Notable Native Americans is a must-read for English language learners with an interest in learning more about the lives of the people who first called the New World home – and their modern-day descendants.
