The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America by Thomas King

Neither a traditional nor all-encompassing history of indigenous people in North America,
The Inconvenient Indian is a personal meditation on what it means to be "Indian." King explores the relationship between aboriginal and non-aboriginal people since the fifteenth century and examines the way that popular culture has shaped our notion of indigenous identity, while also reflecting on his own complicated relationship with activism.
