    You didn't state the grade level you teach but one book for 4th or higher is Guests by Michael Dorris. It is a different take on the Thanksgiving Story. I also used a chapter book, an older one, called Pilgrim Stories, last year that I really liked because it did not glamorize the story and told more acurately how the pilgrims treated the Native Americans. I also really like Birchbark House by Louise Erdrich. It is about a year in the life of a young Obijawa (sorry about the spelling) girl. It is very well written and demonstrates how the Native Americans use their environment to meet their needs and also talks about encounters with settlers including a small pox epidemic.
