The Lived Experience: American Indian Literature after Alcatraz.
Akwe:kon Journal, v11 n3-4 p118-27 Fall-Win 1994
In 1969, American Indian occupation of Alcatraz Island dramatized Native demands for self-determination, tribal lands, and tribal identities. Meanwhile, a blossoming American Indian literary movement began awakening America to Indians' continued existence and providing texts of "lived experience" that created a new kind of Indian leadership and authority. Discusses various texts of this nature and their authors. (SV)
