Colours of Us put out a list of 32 Native American Children's Books.
The Open Education Database presented 20 Native American Authors You Need to Read.
Goodreads has a list of Popular Native American Author's Books.
I personally recommend Sherman Alexie and Stephen Graham Jones.
You know what? How about some films? It doesn't have to be all about books.
Indian Country Today put out a list of 11 Essential Native American Films You Can Watch Online Right Now.
I can definitely recommend Rhymes for Young Ghouls, which is available on Netflix. It's a fascinating mix of gritty reality and magical realism. Smoke Signals is not on that list, but it's a great film, and one more folks are maybe aware of. Unfortunately, it's not on Netflix. It was the first movie I saw Adam Beach in, though I don't know if it was his first film overall. He's come a long way, which is wonderful to see, though I wasn't excited about his role in Suicide Squad.
Curious about Native American actors and actresses? Native Celebrities has a list. Some of these folks are recognizable (Adam Beach, Wes Studi, Graham Greene, Jason Momoa, and others.)
Here's a list of Native American artists.
And Wikipedia offers a list of Native American musicians. If you like rap, check out Frank Waln, who infuses a rap song with a beautiful flute solo and traditional Native sounds. For New Age/instrumental, Brule is a great choice. They perform around Christmas each year here.
Finally, I'd like to leave you with a short film (less than four minutes). It's a poem performed by twelve Native women about the effects of colonization. Pamela J. Peters wrote and directed "My Once Life."
I hope you've discovered a new writer, artist, actor, or musician you didn't know about before.
What is your favorite Native film? Writer? Actor/Actress? Musician? Have you ever seen Brule perform? Have you seen the film Smoke Signals? Any recommendations I missed?
May you find your Muse.
