An incredible read that grabs and doesn't let go. I'll say first off that you should block off time for this book--it's not something you should read in multiple sittings, and you honestly won't want to read it that way. Miranda defies genre as she mashes together archival sourced-history with personal memoir with tribal history with poetry with essay with visual work. Her rich writing--and oh my GOD is it rich, it's so beautiful--really makes the story she's telling all the more rich and vivid. It's also incredibly accessible, and really important for people to read. I'd strongly recommend this to anyone looking to learn more about the ongoing effects of settler colonialism and the logics of elimination that accompany it
"Bad Indians" Say the Friars of Old
March 1, 2015 - Published on Amazon.com
Real life stories told to the author by people whose families knew the true story of an Indian in the mission era and repeated to the generations after them. Also research is not out of musty records kept br Friars, who may have altered their situations to reflect more favorable upon themselves. The Friars historical writings are believed by even the most educated who do not question the written record. The Indian side of the story is in many cases the repeat of actual events as they actually happened. This way information is passed down to the generations. Author is a little chatty, but information she revels is informative and is the dark side of missionary "progress" in 1700 s in Califonia.

Scattered, beautiful, and disturbing. An important work, illuminating previously untold stories of California Indians with vivid imagery, poetry and narration.

A moving personal reflection that illuminates a broad social wound
November 1, 2016 - Published on Amazon.com
This is a beautifully written, and an astonishingly intimate telling of personal history, set in the context of the unsettling story of the writer's ancestors. The California Indians were brutally mistreated, and their culture, history, and land dismembered. Ms. Miranda compels us to end our denial, and to make an accounting for the deep and lasting harm.
