Summary
This work is a contemporary oral history documenting what Native Americans from 16 different tribal nations say about themselves and the world around them. Have you ever sat down for an intimate conversation with a Lakota, Pawnee, Navajo, Yakama, Hopi, or Tonawanda Seneca, among members of other tribal nations, and listened to them talk about their lives and what it is like to be a Native American in the United States today? In this book the author takes readers on a journey across America, east to west, north to south, and around again. Young and old, women and men, speak with candor, insight, and (unknown to many non-Natives) humor about being a Native American in the twenty-first century. Many also express their thoughts about the sometimes staggeringly ignorant, if often well-meaning, non-Natives they encounter, some who do not realize Native Americans still exist, much less that they speak English, have cell phones, use the Internet, and might attend both powwows and power lunches. This book is a contribution to the literature about descendants of the original Americans that makes every reader rethink the past, and present, of the United States
