The Inconvenient Indian

A Curious Account of Native People in North America

DAISY - 2014
Rate this:
Thomas King's critical and personal meditation on what it means to be "Indian" in North America, weaving the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non-Natives and Natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. In the process, King refashions old stories about historical events and figures, takes a sideways look at film and pop culture, relates his own complex experiences with activism, and articulates a deep and revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands. Bestseller. Canada Reads 2015. Winner of the 2014 British Columbia National Award for Canadian Non-Fiction. 2012.
