Literary Feathers

















In my last post, I talked about the most amazing reading with Corpus Journal. I didn't mention that Native American Sherman Alexie was one of the writers in the journal. There was an attempt to get him to the reading, but he was unavailable. Interestingly enough, the next day was a Pow Wow on campus. I thought that if we couldn't get Mr. Alexie, atleast the spirit of native cultures were present around the same time.

I think Sherman Alexie would appreciate this. Have you ever read (or seem the film version of) The Business of Fancydancing? I think it's some of Alexie's best work, and that's saying quite a lot.

I love the indigenous! I wish they would breed us out of existence!

So beautiful. I went to a lot of Pow Wows as a child/teen -- gosh it's been a few years since I've been lucky enough to experience one. Don't they just touch you deep in your soul?
