Books Acquired Recently

Guitar, Lynne. The Taíno ABCs. N.p.: Lynne Guitar, 2017.

I am someone with Taíno ancestry, but I know very little about the culture and nothing about the language because both were nearly destroyed by European imperialism. I am trying to educate myself about both, so I bought this lexicon.

Younging, Gregory. Elements of Indigenous Style: A Guide for Writing By and About Indigenous Peoples. Edmonton: Brush Education, 2018.

I encountered a reference to this style guide in Kazim Ali’s recent memoir, Northern Light. I decided to read it as part of my above-mentioned attempt to relate to my Taíno heritage.
