Another outcome is a renewed understanding of the importance of forming a strong sense of identity.
The Journey of the Freckled Indian children’s book pushes boundaries because it engages in the conversation of what it means to be Tlingit, Alaska Native and Native American in today’s world. The concept of identity is very multi-faceted and is not necessarily defined by skin color or blood quantum, but more through family heritage and a person’s involvement in their community.
This first Freckled Indian children’s book helps introduce children to the topic of identity as it pertains to who they are and where they come from, which is very important in constructing a sense of self-confidence. The book will also provide parents an opportunity to start a conversation with their children about how the outside world may not always see people for who they are, nevertheless, they must stand proud and draw that strength from inside themselves.
