Summary
In a graphics-intensive, magazine-style format, 50 Native/Indian contributors from Canada and the United States present visual art (photography, drawings, paintings), poems, interviews and rememberances to show what it means to be Native/Indian today. Topics range from stereotypes and discrimination to discussions of the contributors' careers in activism, modelling, music, visual arts and more
Summary
This compelling book gives realistic insights into the experiences of growing up Indigenous in North America. Both thought provoking and honest, it challenges readers to have a more critical look at the negative stereotypes the media often portrays
