In an interview with his publisher, Louis V. Clark III said, “I hope that my words bring a better understanding to those of us who share this planet.” That’s in reference to his book “How to be an Indian in the 21st Century.” He was born and raised on Wisconsin’s Oneida Reservation and is a member of the Iroquois Confederacy. His book is a weaving of words that take the shape of verse and prose. He delves into moments in his own Native life to help the conversation on race in America blossom even further. He encourages the masses to “Speak the truth, confound the idiots, [and] listen to the silence.” Find out more on this writers take on life on our July Book of the Month spotlight.
