Summary
These poems tell harsh truths of hopelessness and genocide. The confusion of children whose religion is forbidden; the ironic poverty of a lottery winner; an alternate American history in which Columbus turns and sails away in deceptively simple language, we hear the protest of survivors. 'Indian' is not a derogatory word. It's what we call ourselves.'
