New Episode of NBR: Nonfiction Book Report Highlights Indigenous Stories

The newest episode of Nonfiction Book Report is available on the Library’s YouTube Channel. This month Michelle (@mdoshi23) and I talk about two Newish Noteworthy Nonfiction books highlighting Indigenous stories.

Michelle highlighted We are the middle of forever : Indigenous voices from Turtle Island on the changing Earth, edited by Dahr Jamail and Stan Rushworth. This collection of essays is a powerful, intimate collection of conversations with Indigenous Americans on the climate crisis and the Earth’s future.

I shared Leah Myers’ Thinning blood : a memoir of family, myth, and identity. Leah combines Native American Folklore, family history, and her personal story about being the last member of the Jamestown S’Klallam Tribe in her family line, due to her tribe’s strict blood quantum laws.

New episodes of NBR: Nonfiction Book Report will drop every second Friday of the month. The premier episode of NBR was all about Spooky Books. Tune into our next episode on Friday December 8th, when we’ll each share nonfiction books on the theme: Gifts.

You can find all episodes of Nonfiction Book Report on the Library’s YouTube Channel. Be sure to subscribe, like and share!
