A NOTICE to the Tuscon Unified School District.
I have checked your list of banned books and cannot find any of my titles there.  I am hoping some one can take care of this oversight.
My titles are:  1. Walking The Rez Road, 1993, Voyageur Press.  2. The Rez Road Follies, Canoes, Casinos, Computers, and Birch Bark Baskets, 1997 Kodansha Press, reprinted by the University of Minnesota Press.  3. Anishinaabe Syndicated, 2011, Minnesota Historical Society Press.  4. Rez Salute, due out Fall 2012, Fulcrum Publishing.  
Just for background information I have been writing the Fond du Lac Follies for newspapers for over 22 years.  I have written opinion pieces for other newspapers and have also written two plays.
I am Anishinaabe, a member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippewa, Enrollment # 3166.  I live on the Fond du Lac Reservation established by the Treaty of 1854 in what is now called Minnesota.
My grandfather, Joseph A. Northrup, was also an author and I can't find his name on your list of banned books.  Among other materials he wrote a book called Wawina back in the 1930s. He was also a member of the Fond du Lac Band of Lake Superior Chippea.  Would you please consider banning his book also?
