Shooting Back from the Reservation: A Photographic View of Life by Native American Youth based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
I really enjoyed reading this book because of the power of the photographs taken by the youth. The photographs are usually very simple and don't show the despair and poverty that is often first thought of when it comes to the state of American Indians in the 20th & 21st Centuries. The photographs are of joy and happiness, but also of reality. I think it is a very good tool to inspire Native youth to work towards their goals, to show the everyday, simple joys they have with others, because many times they go unnoticed. Shooting back shows a completely different view of the world (rez) than what most adults are used to, from the point of view of youth. Shooting back is a great book and I applaud the photographers.
