Native America Calling
July 1 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Two Native Americans took home Pulitzer Prizes this year and a third was a finalist. It’s remarkable since the last time a Native American won a Pulitzer was Kiowa writer N. Scott Momaday for the “House Made of Dawn in 1969.” Louise Erdrich (Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa) got top honors in fiction for her novel “The Night Watchman.” Natalie Diaz (Mojave) won for her work “Postcolonial Love Poem.” Cartoonist Marty Two Bulls (Lakota) was a finalist in the editorial cartooning category, but no award was given in that category. It’s widely considered one of the top honors in the areas of literature and journalism. We’ll revisit our previous shows with Diaz and Erdrich as well as talk with Two Bulls about his work.
