 If the topic of racism toward Native Americans arises in discussion of this book, I will explain that discriminatory attitudes that happened toward Native Americans in the 1800's does not align with how we view people of varying backgrounds today.  We will discuss encouraging ways to appreciate all of the different people groups in our world.
