Deborah Miranda's Coyote Takes a Trip is one of my favourite pieces . This item: Sovereign Erotics: A Collection of Two-Spirit Literature (First Peoples: New Directions in Indigenous Studies).

Deborah Miranda's Coyote Takes a Trip is one of my favourite pieces, contrasting a young man's accidental and joyous discovery of his heritage on a Venice Beach bus ride with historical quotes from 18th century missionaries regarding their horrific discovery of that same heritage. Young Ander views sees himself in dreams of an all-consuming spiritual fire that will change everything.

Sovereign Erotics: An Anthology of Two-Spirit Literature. November 1996, Vol. 22, No. 93. E. with Qwo-Li Driskill, Daniel Heath Justice and Lisa Tatonetti.

Qwo-Li Driskill, Daniel Heath Justice, Deborah Miranda. Two-Spirit people, identified by many different tribally specific names and standings within their communities, have been living, loving, and creating art since time immemorial. It wasn’t until the 1970s, however, that contemporary queer Native literature gained any public notice. Even now, only a handful of books address it specifically, most notably the 1988 collection Living the Spirit: A Gay American Indian Anthology

First Nations Two Spirit Collective.

  • Awesome so good. I'm sure if you are looking at this you have already decided to invest as i did.

  • A very informative look into Native American insights on sexuality.

  • good

  • From the literary point of view, the work is poor and almost unreferenced... Mostly short stories/poems, sometimes meaningless or with a vague shadow of interpretation.
    Nonetheless, due to the scarcity of work produced in the area, it remains relevant in the context of erotics.

  • The book starts with a definition/discussion of the term two-spirit, which could encompass book all on its own. I won't get into semantics here, so I will just settle for the blanket explanation that this is a collection by, for, and about Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, and Two-Spirit members of the Native American community.

    What follows is, as I said, a collection of material as diverse in content and form as it is in terms of sexuality ad gender. Deborah Miranda's Coyote Takes a Trip is one of my favourite pieces, contrasting a young man's accidental and joyous discovery of his heritage on a Venice Beach bus ride with historical quotes from 18th century missionaries regarding their horrific discovery of that same heritage. Louis Emse Cruz's Birth Song for Muin, in Red is another one that struck me, particularly the repeated theme of a "young girl in boy skin."

    As much as I'm drawn to the more straightforward narratives, pieces like William Raymond Taylor's Something Wants to Be Said, a poem that manages to evoke more emotion in a single page than most novels, and Qwo-Li Driskill's (Auto)biography of Mad, a back-of-the-book style subject index of his life, complete with page numbers and other references, absolutely demanded my full attention. At the same time, Dan Taulapapa McMull's wonderful poem, A Drag Queen Named Pipi, packs more wonder and beauty into its 5 syllable lines than should be possible.

    Ander's Awakening, by Daniel Heath Justice, is the longest piece in the collection and one that I had to read twice - once for the story, and again for the language. Young Ander views sees himself in dreams of an all-consuming spiritual fire that will change everything. The moment when he is gifted with his new name, Denarra Syrene, is one of the most beautiful passages I have ever read.

    An absolutely fascinating read, regardless of your race, ethnicity, sexuality, or gender, this is a book I am simply overjoyed I had the opportunity to explore.
