Books and Media

Recommending books and media relating to Native American law, culture, and experiences. 


Devastating, perfect novel written by Tommy Orange, an enrolled member of the Arapaho and Cheyenne Tribes of Oklahoma. 

The gist: Native Americans from the west coast converge at a powwow in Oakland. Most share the common question: what makes the modern Native American native? They seek answers in unique, sometimes doomed ways. This is a novel about identity, connection, how we make sense of the past and live in the present. It’s about the stories that save us and the decisions that destroy us.
