“The Heartbeat of Wounded Knee” by David Treuer tells the story of Native America from the surrender of the tribes in the 1890s to the present. Treuer details the forced assimilation of native children at government-run boarding schools. He shows how military service and urban migration brought native people into the American mainstream. He also explores the native cultural resurgence and resistance movements. This is an “essential, intimate history of a resilient people,” and, in light of the Standing Rock protests and the election of the first native women to Congress, is as timely as today’s news. It also makes an excellent companion to Tommy Orange’s bestselling “There There” and David Grann’s “Killers of the Flower Moon”.
