This book is a collection of essays written by Native Americans of various tribes/nations and backgrounds. A wide variety of topics are covered - Native Americans used as mascots for sports teams, the loss of Native languages, racism, living in urban areas, discovering culture and history, and what it means to be Native American today.

The essays are fascinating. I can nearly guarantee that at least some of the essays in this collection will make the reader uncomfortable, and they will definitely make you think, as well. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

"After five centuries of Eurocentrism, many people have little idea that Native American tribes still exist, or which traditions belong to what tribes. America's Indigenous peoples have been effectively stereotyped through different forms of media as spiritual gurus, pagan savages, Indian princesses, or pitiful burdens of society." "Over the past decade however, there has been a rising movement to accurately describe Native cultures and histories. In particular, writers 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. Genocide of the Mind is a moving and inspiring collection of essays that records the determination of people from over twenty-five different nations to bring the Native American experience into the 21st Century."--BOOK JACKET.… (more)
