Why NDNs Write
Henson, Mary
Tribal College Journal of American Indian Higher Education, v21 n2 p38-39 Win 2009
Sinte Gleska University students are all ages. The author's class has an even mix of genders, and there are also non-Indians with various experiences and backgrounds, but they have one thing in common. They are eking out a living in the second poorest county in the nation. The class discusses why NDNs or Natives write. In "Winged Words: American Indian Writers Speak" (University of Nebraska Press, 1990), Laura Coltelli asks prominent Indian authors why they write. The Native authors write to set the record straight, to change the images that have stereotyped Indians for centuries.
