Tiffany Midge’s (Hunkpapa Lakota) 2019 collection of personal essays, “Bury My Heart at Chuck E. Cheese’s,” is her own take on identity, politics and colonialism. It adds up to a revealing and often humorous memoir for the award-winning writer of poetry, opinion and humor pieces and social media posts. Her work garnered a fellowship at the University of Kansas and a column in “Indian Country Today” and she served as the poet laureate for Moscow, Idaho. Among the achievements she lists in her bio are a “sparkling personality,” a “member of the Raiders of the Lost Arch Support,” and was “voted least likely to be impaled by Narwals.” Midge is our January Native In the Spotlight.
