A full cast of Cherokee, Navajo, Choctaw, and Chickasaw narrators deliver a moving audiobook companion to an informative picture book. Listeners hear an introductory history of Native Nations in North America, and then a bustling classroom preparing for their Indigenous Peoples' Day assembly. Twelve students recite brief presentations in youthful voices as sound effects and music evoke the bright illustrations. Listeners learn of the impact of policies enforced since the U.S. stopped making treaties with tribal governments and how Native Nations have asserted their rights and sovereignty since. Each presentation ends with a chorus of voices proudly declaring: "We are still here." Multiple voices narrate detailed backmatter with further details on the students' topics, descriptions of images, a timeline of events, and a note read by the author.
