THE INCONVENIENT INDIAN delivers a Broken Arrow history of Native people in both Canada and the USA.

Written in 2013, it would be welcome to see an Update in the hope that some small miracles have ended the devastation of
government hypocrisy, lies, racism...in exchange for Truth.

Gr 7 Up—When a mother and son refuse to renounce their Blackfoot nationality while attempting a road trip across
the Canadian-U.S. border, they find themselves recognized as citizens of nowhere. King and Donovan's goldenhued story of Indigenous endurance is a simple yet powerful reminder of the impact of colonial history.

This was more of a 2.5 as it started as a 3 then went downhill a bit for me. I'm not sure why I didn't love it, there was nothing wrong with it, I just couldn't connect with it or really understand it. I know it's probably accurate for many people, but him having named, physical embodiments of his depression and anxiety etc was hard for me to understand and relate to.
