Yup, the best writers in Indian Country are back.
Or perhaps they never left?
Trace (aka Blue Indians Editor)
WHY? Our favorite poet-author JOHN TRUDELL (1946-2015)
"I called the album Blue Indians because there is a kind of spiritual and cultural genocide perpetrated on everyone that is poor in this country,” Trudell said. “The advance of technology has put all of us on a kind of reservation. These are the people who can’t educate their children, or afford health care. They’ve been robbed of life, which is what happened to Native people, so in that context, we’re all Indians.”
[About six months after the deaths of his family, John Trudell started writing poetry. He described his work, "They're called poems, but in reality they're lines given to me to hang on to."]
