Description

Everything You Know About Indians is Wrong is a 2009 release from the Indigenous Americas series published by the University of Minnesota Press. This volume is written by Comanche writer Paul Chaat Smith, associate curator at the Smithsonian's National Museum of the American Indian. This collection of 20 essays have appeared previously as speeches and essays from art catalogues, art periodicals, and in full-length scholarly publications. The works cover the common held stereotypes prevalent in America; the author's early days as well as his later years; the American Indian Movement years; art and photography by and about Native Americans; Romanticism; and Spirituality. Employing a biting humour, the author's commentary on the state of Indians in North America is a must-head for anyone interested in First Nations and Native Americans.
