Description: The second edition of American Indian Stereotypes in the World of Children: A Reader and Bibliography "has been put together to try and shock adults into realizing that the world of contemporary American infants and young children is saturated with inappropriate images of Indians", in short, the same purpose as the original version of the book. Infants and young children continue to internalize distorted images they learn about American Indians not only during the twin peaks of Columbus Day and Thanksgiving, but also at seasonal sporting events, when players and fans don ersatz headdresses and sacrilegious paint to act out their (mis) appropriated cookie-cutter version of "braves" and "chiefs". In addition, youngsters (and adults) are bombarded with stereotypes through the mass media and in toys and story books.

This edition incorporates new writings and recent developments, such as a chronology documenting changes associated with the mascot issue. It includes an essay by Dr. Cornell Pewewardy on Disney's recent Pocahontas film and information on significant state. Other new material incorporates powerful commentary by Native American veterans. Also featured is a previously unpublished essay on Thanksgiving, authored by the late Kathy Kerner. Finally, the annotated bibliography is expanded with new entries.
