The inconvenient indian is as it states an account of some events that have occurred in the history of the native people of north america it isnt necessarily a chronological history but more of a laymans introductory guide into this subject so for a reader such as myself this book was the perfect place to start. Rich with dark and light pain and magic the inconvenient indian distills the insights gleaned from thomas kings critical and personal meditation on what it means to be indian in north america weaving the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non natives and natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other. In the inconvenient indian thomas king offers a deeply knowing darkly funny unabashedly opinionated and utterly unconventional account of indian white relations in north america since initial contact. Winner of the 2014 rbc taylor prize the inconvenient indian is at once a history and the complete subversion of a history in short a critical and personal meditation that the remarkable thomas king has conducted over the past 50 years about what it means to be indian in north america.
