Abstract

Cedar Fingers is a twenty-one chapter compilation of short fiction that is Native American in theme, expressing many significant elements of this culture such as stereotypes, the colonized condition of Native American Peoples, an acknowledgment of the traditional way of living, and an emphasis on the importance of healing past wounds for a present recovery of identification. The stories are told in many cases in the first person by a nameless protagonist who is a young Native American woman, using a distracted rhetoric told in simplified linguistics with definite underlying Aboriginal cultural images.
