Overview

Dancing My Dream by Warren Petoskey

This memoir of Native American teacher, writer and artist Warren Petoskey spans centuries and lights up shadowy corners of American history with important memories of Indian culture and survival. Warren's family connects with many key episodes in Indian history, including the tragedy of boarding schools that imprisoned thousands of Indian children as well as the traumatic effects of alcohol abuse and bigotry. He writes honestly about the impact of these tragedies, and continually returns to Indian traditions as the deepest healing resources for native peoples. He writes about the wisdom that comes from practices such as fishing, hunting and sharing poetry. This memoir is an essential voice in the chorus of Indian leaders testifying to major chapters of American history largely missing from most narratives of our nation's past.

I loved the book it was a great story to follow how Warren lived his childhood to adult life. It helped me learn more what it was like growing up Native American, and it is knowledge I will pass on to my children.

The story was very well written and organized that I was able to follow it from the front to back. The story reminded me of my story, I too lived the boarding school days and can relate with many parts of Warren's story. I am so pleased that he has stepped forward to share his experiences. Thank you, Warren
