Legacy Projects > Indiana’s German Roots Coloring Book Indiana’s German Roots Coloring Book

According to the U.S. Census, over one quarter of all Hoosiers can claim at least some German heritage, making it the single largest ethnic group in the state’s makeup. Indiana’s German Roots is a coloring and activity book designed to introduce children to the deep German heritage in Indiana, starting from before it was a state up through the current times. The 20-page booklet introduces the reader, and their parents, to some of the major milestones in Indiana’s German-American history and to some of the lingering traces of this ethnic heritage which can still be found around the state today. These milestones include mentions of New Harmony, the Amish, the Turnverein athletic clubs and touches upon the foods and celebrations that we think of as typically Hoosier and American which actually came to the state thanks to these German immigrants.
