The first excerpt from JK Rowling’s History of Magic in North America was posted yesterday, and it focused on Native American wizards. As a half-Oglala Lakota kid who grew up searching for any signs of my culture that wasn’t a mascot, I almost cried reading it.

Dear Gossips,

I can’t wait until tonight. JK Rowling’s giving us a bedtime story tonight.
