"Our Blood Remembers" and "Dragonfly Weather" both should be included on college reading lists as they exemplify that which is authentic in American Indian culture today; as well as they do the authentic American Indian voice in American literature.
Red Elk is a traditional Dakota/ Lakota woman who happens to be a dedicated advocate and preservationist of her people's culture. She dispells lies and misinformation with the swiftness of a hawk. She cuts through the smoke of liars like a wind goddess with a sharp and nuetralizing blade.
The poetess writes, " . . . after the/ intense inferno, after the smoke clears, there/ among the cedars and ash, one can watch the/ arrival of a single blade of grass" (From "To Come Back," p.42 - "Our Blood Remembers"). It is beautiful. But it is not all "nice," as she once warned me. Because colonization, oppression, racism, sexism, and genocide are not "nice." Buyer beware! This is the real deal.
