Cheyenne author Tommy Orange gives voice to the Native American experience
Tommy Orange makes a striking literary début with his novel "There There", a polyphonic piece of writing which explores Native American identity in the 21st century. The author has drawn on his own experience as a member of the Cheyenne and Arapaho tribe to examine ideas related to place, colonial history and America's complex relationship with indigenous culture.
Orange tells us how the political climate has pushed many people to embrace diversity and reconsider the role of indigenous peoples in our societies.
