David notes in his review of Kiss of the Fur Queen that his intention is to read more indigenous authors, in light of the ongoing issues of reconciliation and appropriation.
I (Amy) have added a new tag, “indigenous author” so that David’s book reviews can be more easily found on this blog. After discussion with David, I have chosen to tag Joseph Boyden and Thomas King as indigenous authors, as they both identify as indigenous. I know there individual arguments for each that their identification is appropriation. An important discussion. In light of the importance of indigenous stories, I’m choosing in this context to go with authorial self-identification.
