The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee

David Treuer

Overview

Some believe that the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890 signified the end of the enduring conflicts between colonial and U.S. forces and the Native American peoples. But according to David Treuer, an Ojibwe anthropologist who grew up on a Minnesota reservation, Native American history continues to unfold and its culture still strives and fights to survive.

Treuer is a literary critic, academic, and writer of both fiction and non-fiction who has contributed to The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, and The Washington Post. Treuer now teaches literature and creative writing at the University of Southern California.

In The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee, named one of the best books of 2019 by multiple publications, Treuer uses history, memoir, and gathered research to tell the story of Native American resourcefulness and reinvention since the late 1800s. Treuer's New York Times Bestseller investigates how the political manipulations by different American governments created new means of survival for the Native Americans.

Favorite Quote

"To articulate the past historically does not mean to recognize it 'the way it really was.' It means to seize hold of a memory as it flashes up at a moment of danger."

Walter Benjamin, literary critic and philosopher
