That Guy Wolf Dancing (American Indian Studies). I am an intellectual Native American woman living in an America that is still living in state of denial and self-congratulation! Like others I enjoy and am encouraged by voices that bridge the gap between groups. But to live with the constant contradictions between what America thinks it is and what it does is something that turns like a screw on my soul every day of my life. Cook-Lynn makes me go "right on!" "Yeah!" Yeah, she's angry like Malcolm X was angry, but she's right.

That Guy Wolf Dancing book. Another great fictional novella that draws from real lived experiences of Native Americans, this book pairs well with text that describes the events that happened with European invasion. I highly recommend this book for anybody that seeks to better understand the values and relationships of indigenous people.

That Guy Wolf Dancing. From one of the writers of the twentieth-century Native American Literary Renaissance comes a remarkable tale about how to acknowledge the past and take a chance on the future. Rooted in tribal-world consciousness, That Guy Wolf Dancing is the story of a young tribal wolf-man becoming a part of his not-sonatural world of non-tribal people. Twenty-something Philip Big Pipe disappears from an unsettled life he can hardly tolerate and ends up in an off-reservation town. When he leaves, he doesn’t tell anyone where he is going or what his plans, if he has.

Cook-Lynn (Native American studies, emerita, Eastern Washington Univ. Anti-Indianism in Modern America), a member of the Crow Creek Sioux Tribe, has produced a series of interrelated essays that call for a complete reframing of both the discipline of Native American studies and the way that native peoples are portrayed in .

From one of the writers of the twentieth-century Native American Literary Renaissance comes a remarkable tale about how to acknowledge the past and take a chance on the future. Rooted in tribal-world consciousness, That Guy Wolf Dancing is the story of a young tribal wolf-man becoming a part of his not-sonatural world of non-tribal people. Twenty-something Philip Big Pipe disappears from an unsettled life he can hardly tolerate and ends up in an off-reservation town. When he leaves, he doesn’t tell anyone where he is going or what his plans, if he has any, might be. Having never taken himself too seriously, he now faces a world that feels very foreign to him. As he struggles to adapt to the modern universe, Philip, ever a “wolf dancer,” must improvise, this time to a sound others provide for him. Like the wolf, Philip sometimes feels hunted, outrun, verging on extinction. Only by moving rhythmically in a dissident, dangerous, and iconic world can Philip Big Pipe let go of the past and craft a new future.
