Description

"Living the Spirit honors the past and present life of gay American Indians. This book is not just about gay American Indians, it is BY gay American Indians. Over twenty different American Indian writers, men and women, represent tribes from every part of North America.

Living the Spirit tells our story --the story of our history and traditions, as well as the realitites and challenges of the present.

As Paula Gunn Allen writes, "Some like Indians endure." The themes of change and continuity are a part of every contribution in this book --in the contemporary coyote tales by Daniel-Harry Steward and Beth Brant --in the reservation experiences of Owlfeather and Erna Pahe --in the gay urban experiences of Jerry, a Hupa Indian --in the painful memories of cruelty and injustice that Beth Brant, Chrystos, and others evoke. Our pain, but also our joy, our love, and our sexuality, all are here, in these pages."

This book is one of the first of its kind - a powerhouse collection featuring poems, stories, essays and illustrations by writers that include Paula Gunn Allen, Chrystos, Beth Brant, Will Roscoe and Randy Burns. A treasure for anyone interested in Native American culture and Queer history.

St. Martin's Press, New York, 1988. Hardcover. Like New in Near Fine dust jacket with one closed tear and light crease along top edge. First edition, first printing. 8vo. 235 pp.
