Native Narratives for the Next Generation
Family-friendly entertainment to share and learn about the past, present, and future of our people.
We have always told the stories of our ancestors, but mainstream entertainment has often mis- and underrepresented the truth. Today, we continue to share the history, culture, and community of Indigenous peoples as we envision a better future for our children.
Indigenous Stories From Around the World
These movies, TV shows, books, and podcasts showcase the diversity of Indigenous peoples—including Native American, Native Hawaiian, Alaska Native, First Nations, and Indigenous cultures across Central and South America.
Amplifying Our Voices with Media and Tech
Find tools for learning and making a difference.
Common Sense gratefully acknowledges the Ramaytush Ohlone peoples who are the original inhabitants of the San Francisco peninsula. With offices across the country, we also respectfully acknowledge the Native peoples who have stewarded this land since time immemorial.
Consistent with our values of diversity, equity, and inclusion, we have a responsibility to make visible our relationship to Native peoples. We recognize that we benefit from living and working on their traditional homelands, and we affirm their sovereign rights.

Families know us for our independent, age-based reviews of movies, TV shows, books, games, podcasts and apps. Educators use our free curriculum and edtech reviews to plan lessons and integrate technology into their teaching practice. At our core, we are a children's advocacy group. We draw on original research, industry expertise, and community partnerships to advocate for laws and policies that help kids thrive.
