Rising Voices: Writings of Young Native Americans

$7.00 each


Words of young contemporary Native Americans, words of protest against oppression, poems of pain, and cries for lost identities.

Young people have always echoed the feelings, moods, and climates of the adult world with surprising perception. And this astonishing collection of poems and essays written by young contemporary Native Americans is no exception.

Here, with insight, clarity, and strength of feeling, are words of protest against prejudice and oppression, poems of estrangement and pain, cries for lost worlds and lost identities. But here, too, are songs of celebration and joy for the future of all Native American families—and hope that change is not only possible but already in the air.
