    Who are your favorite native authors?
    I really like Susan Power (The Grass Dancer) and anything by Linda Hogan.

                  Sherman Alexie, he makes me think.

                  Anne M. Dunn has done a wonderful collection of stories, both the old legends and her own experiences.

                  Winona LaDuke, well I have not read her's yet, need to get back to the rez and buy some more stuff, lol.

                  I believe in something I want to believe, not what someone wants me to believe.

                    I like Sherman Alexie but I also like Eden Robinson. I have a cousin who is an author but he is just starting to get known. Kevin Paul

                      good ole Junior! (Sherman) hope to see his mom and his sisters this week, he don't come over from Seattle very much.

                      I also love Vine Deloria Jr.'s stuff... gonna miss him!

                      There's also a horror writer that's won the Bram Stoker's prize that uses the name Owl Going Back... my wife and I wondered, but the way he wrote we can believe he is... was a book called Evil Whispers... VERY good... I don't think my wife slept for a week! LOL... haven't seen anything else from him though.

                      I liked Louis Erdrich's stuff I've read.

                      Just my 49 cents worth!

                      I became a singer because I love to sing... and to feed my addiction to cough drops!

                        Sherman Alexie and Homalosa (talk about talented...that woman's got skillz) Why? Because they write awesome stuff. Anything that paints pictures so vivid I feel like I'm there, makes me care about the characters, AND makes me THINK at the same time? Got dang! That's a lil bit of literary heaven.

                        Dang Redshield! LOL I wanna read that now!
                        SHAKE IT!!!!
