The Inconvenient Indian A Curious Account of Native People in North America
This is a critical and personal meditation about what it means to be “Indian” in North America.
In weaving the tale of the relationship between non-Natives and Natives in the centuries since the
two groups first encountered each other, the author refashions old stories about historical events
and figures, takes a sideways look at film and pop culture, relates his own complex experiences with
activism, and articulates a deep and revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands. Ultimately, this book is an offering of hope.
