Indian Reservation

This sounds like a very good new book on Rez Life by David Treuer, who wrote a series of rez sketches for Slate magazine a few years back.  More and more books and movies are coming out on contemporary life on the 300+ Indian reservations spread around the country.  One of my favorite films is Smoke Signals by Chris Eyre.  On a fun note, here are the Raiders singing Indian Reservation, one of my favorite songs from the 70s.

  1. Great excerpt from that movie. One of my favorites too. I really like Sherman Alexie's work.
