Friday, March 24, 2023 – Native bookshelf: Joshua Whitehead and Rebecca Webster

Making Love with the Land (2022) is a collection of non-fictional essays by Joshua Whitehead (Oji-nêhiyaw) about Indigenous queerness and being shaped by myriad connections to the land. Whitehead is the author of Jonny Appleseed, another popular award-winning novel putting queerness upfront. In Defense of Sovereignty: Protecting the Oneida Nation’s Inherent to Self-Determination by Oneida author Rebecca Webster examines a 20-year jurisdictional dispute between the Oneida Nation of Wisconsin and the town of Hobart. Friday on Native America Calling, we talk with the authors on our regular feature Native Bookshelf and hear from Kinsale Drake (Diné) of NDN Girls Book Club.
