Dreaming in Indian: Contemporary Native American Voices

Reviewed by:

Give me a mic – I’ll share my stories. It’s time for us to tell OUR own stories.
Comedian Ryan McMahon
This compelling anthology gives voice to today’s indigenous artists of North America through a collection of poetry, personal anecdotes, artwork, letters, quotes, perspectives on aboriginal issues, stories, clothing design, food, comic book, songs, dance, interviews, and social activism.  Over sixty different voices share their perspectives as contemporary Native American voices in this engaging resource that reads more like a magazine than a book, with a wide variety of formats and layouts being used.  A short biography of each artist who contributed to this anthology can be found at the end  of the book.  Many of the contributors to the book are Canadian. The photographs of the contributors makes this book more personal, as we see the people who are sharing their unique voices and perspectives.
The companion book, Urban Tribes, is  an anthology of urban indigenous voices.  This anthology is a must for every senior high school library.
