Through the Eyes of the Eagle: Illustrating Healthy Living for Children is a family‐friendly exhibition, inspired by a children’s book series of the same name. The Eagle Books, a series of four children’s books (Through the Eyes of the Eagle, Plate Full of Color, Knees Lifted High, and Tricky Treats), encourage a return to the ways of our ancestors, including physical activity and healthy eating.
“Chemehuevi/Navajo author Ryan Huna Smith and I localized the book for older readers, teens, where the heroine is a skateboarder. It’s Up 2 You challenges youth about the temptations of fast food and the benefits of physical activity and healthy eating,” Falk said.
