Beyond Sherman Alexie

During this program, four Montana Indian authors talk about their stories published in Off the Path: An Anthology of 21st Century Montana American Indian Writers, Vol. I.

Sherman Alexie is not the only American Indian writer. Nor does the experience of one Indian represent the experiences of all Natives living in urban areas and reservations across the U.S.

That point of view, plus insights into American Indian culture and tribal differences, is part of the discussion during this program.

The stories published in Off the Path were written by Adrian Jawort and Cinnamon Spear (Northern Cheyenne), Luella Brien and Eric Leland Bigman Brien (Crow), and Sterling HolyWhiteMountain (Blackfeet).
