Voice on the Water: Great Lakes Native America Now
by Grace Chaillier and Rebecca Tavernini (eds)
Featuring the works of more than 80 authors and artists, these are the stories, poems and images that echo the lives of contemporary American Indians living in Michigan.
The contributor's narratives and art address themes of the land, the lakes, family, the search for center, ideas of time and the past, communalism and our Native communities on and off reservation homelands, along with storytelling, Indian education, the Michigan urban Indian experience, ceremony and ritual, persistence of traditional arts and lifeways, and new cultural ways of being.
An insightful, enjoyable and important collection for all ages.
