The Native Issues group is devoted to literature and other works by and about Native people. Many of the books are about Native America, but you will find a few that have to do with natives from other places. Since this group was created, it has grown in membership, mostly by people finding the group on their own, adding discussions and books...
The Native Issues group is devoted to literature and other works by and about Native people. Many of the books are about Native America, but you will find a few that have to do with natives from other places. Since this group was created, it has grown in membership, mostly by people finding the group on their own, adding discussions and books that have proved important to members in their quest to understand the native experience. You will find that this group is not as big as some, but that is an asset here...a formidable minority in a sea of dominant culture. (Just kidding really, an overly sentimental, idealized, romanticized parallell to the world's native populations.)
This group is open to everyone who has an interest.

Spirit Car by Diane Wilson
I have added this to Books to Read on the group shelf. Diane is joing my book club in Dec, as she is a local author. I have also heard her speak on Native Ameriocan issues in tpt television.
I highly recommend reading:
The author asks the questions, "But what if knowing the truth about the past would change the way we live in the present? What would it mean, for example, if we were held accountable not only for our own actions but also for those of history-for the actions and consequences of our relatives? Why do we need to know about ourselves, our ancestors, our history?"
The book concludes with the first-ever 2002 Dakota Commemorative March, an event that honored the 1,700 Dakota who were removed from the state of MN.
