A collection of childhood stories, traditional stories and an essay, many of which were written in the very early 1900s, American Indian Stories is one of the first books to be written by a Native woman without the “aid” of a white editor, interpreter, or ethnographer. Controversial in her lifetime, Zitkala-Sá devoted her life—in what was essentially a foreign tongue—to seeking justice for her people. While she writes of everyday humiliations that encompassed the residential school experience, she also writes of resistance and rebellion. These are stories from Red Bird’s life, in Red Bird’s words. They are a gift to young readers today.
