Collection / Anthology

This collection includes: Body Indian, by Hanay Geiogamah (Kiowa), which uses an apt and telling metaphor for the horrific ramifications of Native American oppression in the United States: Bobby, an alcoholic with a wooden leg, is robbed of the lease money he received for reservation land allotment. In The Woman Who Was a Red Deer Dressed for the Deer Dance, Diane Glancy (Cherokee) connects the story of a young woman and her grandmother to a mythological spirit deer. Power Pipes by Spiderwoman Theater (Lisa Mayo, Gloria Miguel, Muriel Miguel, founders; Kuna/Rappahannock), Power Pipes enacts of the "horrors and hilarity" of the sisters' childhood through ritual chanting, dancing, dramatic scenes and monologues. Only Drunks and Children Tell the Truth by Drew Hayden Taylor (Ojibway), offers a tragic-comic treatment of questions involving self-identity and family. The Independence of Eddie Rose, by William S. Yellow Robe, Jr.(Assiniboine/Nakota), chronicles the plight of a Native American teenager trying to break out of a dysfunctional family. The Story of Susannah, by Victoria Nalani Kneubuhl (Hawaiian), concerns the Bible's Old Testament Susanna whom Daniel saves from false testimony made by the Elders. Chronicling everything from Indian chiefs meeting Columbus to Kevin Costner making a sequel to Dances with Wolves, Indian Radio Days, by LeAnne Howe and Roxy Gordon (Choctaw), is a satiric indictment of commonly held falsehoods about Native peoples.
