Contemporary American Indian Life in "The Owl's Song" and "Smoke Signals."
Charles, Jim
English Journal, v90 n3 p54-59 Jan 2001
Discusses "Smoke Signals" (a 1998 award-winning film) and "The Owl's Song" (a 1974 novel), both of which feature young adult American Indian protagonists. Suggests instructional strategies for teaching these works in tandem. Argues that teaching these works informs students about relevant literary, historical, social, and cultural topics in ways that undermine prevalent and damaging misunderstandings of contemporary American Indian people.
