An American Indian Anthology.
Tvedten, Benet, Comp.
The anthology is intended to be a discovery for the many Americans whose superficial knowledge of the American Indians has been derived from history books, Hollywood films, and other stereotyped views of the Indian culture. Understanding and appreciation of a particular culture can be found in the stories and poetry of the people. This small collection of creative writing is by contemporary Indians. Some of the contributors are professional writers; others are not. Remembrance of the old ways, present-day realities, and future hopes are described in these short stories, poems, legends, and narratives. Much of the material for this book originally appeared in other publications, for example, "Woman Singing," by Simon J. Ortiz, and "The Man From Washington," by James Welch, first appeared in "The American Indian Speaks"; and the poetry of Gerald Robert Vizenor is from his book, "South of the Painted Stones." Other materials were written at the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe, New Mexico. (Author/FF)
