Children of the First People: Fresh Voices of Alaska’s Native Kids

by Tricia Brown

Young readers can discover what its like to be a kid in Alaska in author Tricia Brown and photographer Roy Corral‘s upcoming book, Children of the First People (available everywhere books are sold April 9, 2019.)

The book shares a window into the lives of ten Alaskan kids and readers can get a better understanding of the diversity of Alaska’s Native cultures and their place in the world—their favorite traditions, foods, games, and more.

For centuries, the ancestors of these children have thrived in the far north: Iñupiat, Eyak, Yup’ik, Haida, Athabascan, Unangax̂ (Aleut), Tlingit, Alutiiq, Tsimshian, and Siberian Yupik. And while Alaska Native children are a lot like kids everywhere, their everyday lives balance modern culture with ancient traditions.
