What are the best Native American fiction books?
Here at Bookish, we plan to celebrate by reading! Shocking, we know. We hope you do too. We recommend picking these books up, not just this month but all year long. There There by Tommy Orange. The Round House by Louise Erdrich. Mapping the Interior by Stephen Graham Jones.
November is Native American Heritage Month, a celebration meant to give recognition to the significant contribution the native peoples have made to the history, culture, and growth of the United States. One way to get into the spirit of things is by reading works by some of the greatest Native American authors from the past century. Some of their works will shed light on activism, culture, and history, some expose the challenges of living on reservations or establishing an identity in the modern world, and all are beautiful, well-written pieces of poetry, prose, and non-fiction that are excellent reads, regardless of the heritage of their authors. This list touches on just a few of the amazing Native American authors out there and can be a great starting point for those wanting to learn more throughout this month and the rest of the year. Sherman Alexie is one of the best known Native American writers today.

Since Thanksgiving is a time when the collective American imagination envisions a peaceful meal shared between colonizer and colonized, where both appear to share a mutual understanding and benefit, why not make this fantasy a reality by exercising some empathy-for-the- other muscles and read literary works written from their perspective?

2018 - NOVEMBER TBR (NON FICTION NOVEMBER & NATIVE AMERICAN HERITAGE MONTH)
Brandon Hobson's remarkable, moving novel, Where the Dead Sit Talking , follows year-old Sequoyah as he becomes the foster child of Harold and Agnes Troutt, a middle-aged couple already fostering year-old George and year-old Rosemary. While these writers are important to me as a reader, a writer, and as a Cherokee, I should add that there are also many short story collections, books of poetry, and memoirs that represent an active campaign for the traditions and values of Native American culture. And while this list contains such well-established writers as Momaday and Erdrich, there are newer, younger Native American writers out there right now creating amazing works of art—people like Layli Long Soldier, Terese Mailhot, and Tommy Orange, whose names and works will become are already becoming a powerful and constructive force in Native American literature. Momaday's House Made of Dawn won the Pulitzer Prize in , which alone should tell you how great it is. It's the story of a World War II veteran named Abel who returns home to try and adjust to living back in the world he once lived in, but he struggles, gets drunk a lot and fights and then commits a murder that lands him in jail for a while. Once he gets out of jail his struggles only continue. While all that may sound dark, this is ultimately a novel of hope as Abel learns to embrace his Native American heritage.
