November is Native American Heritage Month! While we are intentional about highlighting the lives and contributions of indigenous people throughout the year, we take time this month to specially honor the people who live, or historically lived, on the land we now love. In this post, we have included a list of high-quality children’s books written by Native authors. We have also included a section on books for adults as well to learn more.
Blazing Stars Montessori School provides an equitable, authentic Montessori education for children ages 3 – 9 years old. We envision a learning community grounded in culturally sustaining pedagogy that lays the foundation for children to author their own journeys in life. At Blazing Stars Montessori School, we prioritize the emotional, mental, and physical well-being and safety of our students and community. We aim to provide a Montessori environment where joy, empowerment, humanity, interconnectedness, healing, balance, and harmony are at the core of daily learning experiences. The Montessori approach is a child-centered, hands-on-learning pedagogy rooted in peace education and global mindedness. The holistic approach of Dr. Maria Montessori helps all children become truly capable and productive individuals by focusing on their moral, behavioral, emotional, and intellectual development.
We are a member of the Wildflower Network of schools. Wildflower is an ecosystem of decentralized Montessori micro-schools that support children, teachers, and parents. Wildflower aspires to give all children and families the opportunity to choose high quality, beautiful learning environments as they follow life’s unfolding journey.
