Winona LaDuke, one of the Native American authors banned from the Tucson Unified School District, recently spoke out about the book and ethnic studies ban in Tucson, Arizona.

She gets into the history of banning books, by saying: "Book banning has a distasteful history. Catholic priests burned Mayan books in 1562. Nazi Germany banned 4,100 or so books from 1932-39. Various books have been banned at many times across the world, including in the U.S."
