Porter CollegePRTR 151N Tommy Orange and the New Native Renaissance

Major figures in the New Native Renaissance (Tommy Orange, Terese Mailhot, and Billy-Ray Belcourt) are read to discover the contours of this new movement of indigenous literature. Course explores a wide range of new Native genres (memoir, poetry, short stories, and novels), but the central text is Tommy Orange's "There There," which critics have hailed as a central text in the revival of Native American letters.
