Reading Native American/American Indian Literature

November is National Native American and Alaskan Native Heritage Month. That means that here at EthnoLit, we’ll be reading literature written by writers of Native American, American Indian, and Alaskan Native heritage.  The Resource page gives a list of some early and contemporary Indigenous writers. You can learn more about the origins of the month here.

I haven’t made any decisions yet, but I’ll probably be reading something from this list of books I’ve been meaning to read:

The Last Report on the Miracles of Little No Horse by Louise Erdrich

Reservation Blues by Sherman Alexie

The Death of Jim Loney by James Welch

Little by David Treuer

Field of Honor by D.L. Birchfield

The Grass Dancer by Susan Power

What are you reading for National Native American Heritage Month?

Check out the EthnoLit Resources pages for some ideas and suggestions on what to read.

I’ll upload some descriptions of the books on my list later, and maybe you can help me to decide what to read. Feel free to throw other suggestions my way, especially if you know of any good comics by Native American artists or writers!
