Book cover for Survivor Café: The Legacy of Trauma and the Labyrinth of Memory
Given the chance to listen, I found that although their stories sounded anything but identical to my own, the tangled emotions they described suggested an unlikely yet compelling familiarity. Disproportionate burdens of grief, anxiety, ...more

Wilma Mankiller
“Though many non-Native Americans have learned very little about us, over time we have had to learn everything about them. We watch their films, read their literature, worship in their churches, and attend their schools. Every third-grade student in the United States is presented with the concept of Europeans discovering America as a "New World" with fertile soil, abundant gifts of nature, and glorious mountains and rivers. Only the most enlightened teachers will explain that this world certainly wasn't new to the millions of indigenous people who already lived here when Columbus arrived.”
Wilma Mankiller, Every Day Is a Good Day: Reflections by Contemporary Indigenous Women

“And still I urge you to struggle. Struggle for the memory of your ancestors. Struggle for wisdom. Struggle for the warmth of The Mecca. Struggle for your grandmother and grandfather, for your name. But do not struggle for the Dreamers. Hope for them. Pray for them, if you are so moved. But do not pin your struggle on their conversion. The Dreamers will have to learn to struggle themselves, to understand that the field for their Dream, the stage where they have painted themselves white, is the deathbed of us all.”
Ta-Nehesi Coates

I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.

Amanda Lovelace
“once upon a time, the princess rose from the ashes her dragon lovers made of her & crowned herself the mother-fucking queen of herself.   - how’s that for a happily ever after?”

Tad Williams
“Never make your home in a place. Make a home for yourself inside your own head. You'll find what you need to furnish it- memory, friends you can trust, love of learning, and other such things. That way it will go with you wherever you journey.”
Tad Williams
