As KUOW reports today, it seems a Native American student who was required to read the book took issue with the its depiction of native people. The girl’s mom, Sarah Sense-Wilson, agreed and wrote the school to have it removed from the curriculum, writing:“(The book has a) high volume of racially offensive derogatory language and misinformation on Native Americans. In addition to the inaccurate imagery, and stereotype views, the text lacks literary value which is relevant to today’s contemporary multicultural society.”
The woman in question apparently has even read the book. Yet it’s beyond me how is it possible to get it wrong so much.
