Summary
Indian Voices, Alison Owings's most recent oral history, documents what Native Americans say about themselves, their daily lives, and the world around them. Through interviews many express their thoughts about the sometimes staggeringly ignorant, if often well-meaning, non-Natives they encounter-some who do not realize Native Americans still exist, much less that they speak English, have cell phones, use the Internet, and might attend powwows and power lunches. An inspiring and important contribution about the original Americans that will make every reader rethink the past-and present
