Loren Toddy Finally a Third voter!!


League of Native Nations Way cool.


message 3: by Kelly (new)

Kelly I'm a Native American lit novice--mostly Sherman Alexie's stuff. Any good alternative suggestions from the list?

Loren Toddy Silko is always good. Maybe Momaday but you should ask League for the hard core books if you are interested.


League of Native Nations There are some others but these are the better writers. Taylor is interesting as well as Harjo and both Deloria's.


message 6: by Loren (new)

Loren Toddy Simon Ortiz is better than Alexie in my opinion with poetry.


message 7: by Loren (new)

Loren Toddy Churchill huh?! He is not Native. I knew someone would add him though.

Michael Spisak an excerpt from Full Circle, Chapter 24:

"...The Ancestors waited patiently, watching as their descendants are forced to live that hell. They wait, until Hell becomes accepted as normal and evil becomes accepted as common place. They watch, their grand children so completely lost to them. These same children given explicit instructions for return but the instructions ignored. No one capable of interpreting the instructions any longer.
The Ancients wait and watch as foreign invaders reign down devastation in less than 300 years. Wait and watch as the invaders turn a pristine utopia into a fetid pool of decay and the Ancients descendants become replica’s of the invaders. As these descendants wreak the same havoc and destruction upon each other. For millennia the Ancients exist watching as what was given so freely becomes a commodity where the greedy demand payment for what has never been theirs to sell..."

Coolchoc This is a long shot. I'm looking for the book/author...he is Native American and a character is an assassin who uses a random number generator to make decisions so she won't become predictable. Any help is appreciated!!
