7:00pm American Indian Film Festival screening of short film Universal VIP based on a story from Don’t Know Much About Indians (but i wrote this book about us anyways). Gyasi also co-directed and co-executive produced the film.
An insightful contribution to the ongoing debate, even though author Gyasi Ross doesn’t have this issue on his list of priorities.
This new book of stories and poems by Gyasi Ross is a worthy successor to his popular first book, Don’t Know Much About Indians (but i wrote this book about us anyways). Pre-order here now.

We will call her “Lydia Bearback.” Lydia Bearback and I were elementary classmates on the Blackfeet Indian Reservation in a town called Browning, Montana. Browning is a small town in Northern Montana with a population of a whisker over 1000. Like most Indian reservations on the Great Plains, the Blackfeet Reservation was governmentally engineered to be poor, and my family was poorer than most.
