Authenticity comes hard for the assimilated, but they fake it till they make it. A caper at the Laney College powwow in Oakland, California is a loose organizing structure for empathetic, interrelated character sketches in this novel about the urban experiences of Native Americans. The title is a reference to the misunderstood Gertrude Stein quote about Oakland--"there is no there there," like Thomas Wolfe's "you can't go home again," describes a painful nostalgia. Natives seek connections to a vanished past, yet in the present they find its spirit.

Dene Oxedene wins a $5,000 grant with his proposal to video stories of urban full-blooded or mixed-blooded Native Americans living in Oakland, CA. Each is heading to a large gathering, the Oakland Pow Wow, and is offered $200 to be recorded. In their own voices, we hear about the lives and stories of twelve different characters, many who have troubles of one kind or another and who are mostly interrelated. Each character gets a chapter or chapters and a point of view. Many have lost touch with their culture, feel alienated, and hope that the Pow Wow will help them heal by connecting to others.

The book is well-written, raw, and heart-wrenching, but it is hard to keep track of 12 voices, even when the chapters carry their names. By the time you hear them again, you cannot remember who some of them were not how they are related. A character guide at the beginning would help. I also did not care for the ending and the lingering uncertainty. ( )

This was fantastic. Orange slowly knits together the stories of urban Indians in Oakland, and the structure pays off (pay attention to minor characters, as they often return). Beatifully written and compelling. ( )

Characters here do not notice connections that might offer meaning even though they tell endless details. For those of us who may want literature to confirm human journeys, (or even reject them), this is boring stuff.
 
There There signals an exciting new era for Native American fiction. Orange lends a critical voice that at once denudes the reality of cultural genocide while evoking a glimmer of encouragement.
 
The network of characters in There There proves dizzying, but the multivocal nature of the book is a purposeful, intelligent strategy. It offers a glimpse of an interconnected life, a world in which small stones don’t just sink to the bottom of the sea but change tides.

This is a trim and powerful book, a careful exploration of identity and meaning in a world that makes it hard to define either.
adicionada por ScattershotSteph | editarVox, Constance Grady (Jul 2, 2018)
 
The idea of unsettlement and ambiguity, of being caught between two worlds, of living a life that is disfigured by loss and the memory of loss, but also by confusion, distraction and unease, impels some of the characters, and allows the sound of the brain on fire to become dense with dissonance. Orange’s characters are, however, also nourished by the ordinary possibilities of the present, by common desires and feelings. This mixture gives their experience, when it is put under pressure, depth and a sort of richness.

In the dark times
Will there also be singing?
Yes, there will also be singing.
About the dark times.
--Bertolt Brecht

How can I not know today your face tomorrow, the face that is there already or is being forged beneath the face you show me or beneath the mask you are wearing, and which you will only show me when I am least expecting it?

Just like the Indian Head test pattern was broadcast to sleeping Americans as we set sail from our living rooms, over the ocean blue-green glowing airwaves, to the shores, the screens of the New World.
Plenty of us are urban now. If not because we live in cities, then because we live on the internet. Inside the high-rise of multiple browser windows. They used to call us sidewalk Indians. Called us citified, superficial, inauthentic, cultureless refugees, apples. An apple is red on the outside and white on the inside. But what we are is what our ancestors did. How they survived. We are the memories we don’t remember, which live in us, which we feel, which make us sing and dance and pray the way we do, feelings from memories that flare and bloom unexpectedly in our lives like blood through a blanket from a wound made by a bullet fired by a man shooting us in the back for our hair, for our heads, for a bounty, or just to get rid of us.
They took everything and ground it down to dust as fine as gunpowder, they fired their guns into the air in victory and the strays flew out into the nothingness of histories written wrong and meant to be forgotten. Stray bullets and consequences are landing on our unsuspecting bodies even now.
...we know the smell of gas and freshly wet concrete and burned rubber better than we do the smell of cedar or sage or even fry bread—which isn’t traditional, like reservations aren’t traditional, but nothing is original, everything comes from something that came before, which was once nothing. Everything is new and doomed. We ride buses, trains, and cars across, over, and under concrete plains. Being Indian has never been about returning to the land. The land is everywhere or nowhere.
This there there. He hadn’t read Gertrude Stein beyond the quote. But for Native people in this country, all over the Americas, it’s been developed over, buried ancestral land, glass and concrete and wire and steel, unreturnable covered memory. There is no there there.
