Overview

Genocide of the Mind: New Native American Writing by MariJo Moore


After five centuries of Eurocentrism, many people have little idea that Native American tribes still exist, or which traditions belong to what tribes. However over the past decade there has been a rising movement to accurately describe Native cultures and histories. In particular, people have begun to explore the experience of urban Indians—individuals who live in two worlds struggling to preserve traditional Native values within the context of an ever-changing modern society. In Genocide of the Mind, the experience and determination of these people is recorded in a revealing and compelling collection of essays that brings the Native American experience into the twenty-first century. Contributors include: Paula Gunn Allen, Simon Ortiz, Sherman Alexie, Leslie Marmon Silko, and Maurice Kenny, as well as emerging writers from different Indian nations.

Thought provoking at the least. Althought I may not agree with all the essays, I came away with something from each. The most profound thing for me was I no longer felt alone. Being of Mohawk descent, and living with parents and grandparents who tried to deny their heritage, I came away understanding more of why they were that way but also knowing that I am not alone in the feeling of missing something. I would recommend it to anyone with an interest in finding them selves and for all to realize that the native american culture is alive.
