Mausape belongs to a race that is losing its culture and to a generation that is losing its mind. In stories and poems mixing magical realism with unflinching reality, a young American Indian author offers a raw, graphic view of life on a reservation.
From the Publisher:
A collection of interwoven stories chronicles the lives of several X-Indians--Indians who have lost their traditional beliefs, traditions, and medicines--as they grow up and become young men.Mausape belongs to a race that is losing its culture and to a generation that is losing its mind.

Mausape, a young "X-Indian" man dreams he's about to compete against the King of All Fancy-Dancers — who, it turns out, is Elvis Presley in full Las Vegas regalia. Another teenage boy, concerned that he's not a real warrior, seeks confirmation behind the liquor store from Grandma Spider, a wise, obese old creature with the torso of an elderly woman and the eight legs of a spider. In stories and poems mixing magical realism with unflinching reality, a young American Indian author offers a raw, graphic view of life on a reservation, a place where bitterness toward the white man lingers, where the enemy often appears in liquid form, where misogyny often raises its ugly head, and where a new generation's pop culture infiltrates ancient beliefs. A standout voice in the anthology NIGHT GONE, DAY IS STILL COMING, Thomas M. Yeahpau explores the place between native culture and contemporary America where X-Indians dwell.

Praise

"The stories are compelling and disturbing, laced with the irony of living between two worlds, an experience that Yeahpau captures with laconic intensity." 3/1/2007
