Summary, etc.:
Anthology of art and writings from some of the most groundbreaking Native artists working in North America today. Emerging and established Native artists, including acclaimed author Joseph Boyden, renowned visual artist Bunky Echo Hawk, and stand-up comedian Ryan McMahon, contribute thoughtful and heartfelt pieces on their experiences growing up Indigenous, expressing them through such mediums as art, food, the written word, sport, dance, and fashion. Renowned chef Aaron Bear Robe explains how he introduces restaurant customers to his culture by reinventing traditional dishes. And in a dramatic photo spread, model Ashley Callingbull and photographer Thosh Collins reappropriate the trend of wearing 'Native' clothing. Whether addressing the effects of residential schools, calling out bullies through personal manifestos, or simply citing hopes for the future, Dreaming In Indian refuses to shy away from difficult topics.

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2015 February #1
    The voices and lived experiences of young contemporary Native Americans are brought to the fore in this much-needed collection of art, prose, poetry, song, and memoir. These are poignant voices indeed, redolent with not only the pain of racism and the isolation of stereotyping but also the sheer raw confidence of youthful expression. The talent of these young artists is as impressive as the range of ways in which they explore it. Louie Gong reinvents popular shoe brands with traditional Northwest Salish designs, Aja Sy's poem asks us to imagine a world without gender norms, Nadya Kwandibens' photographs capture the Indian urban experience, and Joseph Boyden recounts the feelings of teenage worthlessness that he shed like the skin of his pet python. These and 42 other stories are as far removed as can be from the usual stereotypes of generic "Indians" in children's and YA literature, and they are well served by a large trim size and a glossy but gritty photo-heavy design. It's hard to imagine a middle- or high-school classroom that wouldn't benefit from having this. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.
