Bad Indians – Deborah Miranda - Story about a life of Madgel Eleanore Yeoman and Alfred Edward Miranda. - This California Story dovetails with another: as a mixed-blood “ Mission Indian,” I have spent a lifetime being told I’m not a “real Indian” – in large part because I do not have the language of my ancestors and much of our culture was literally razed to the ground o Refused to believe that the absence of language meant my culture was nonexistent - Culture is ultimately lost when we stop telling the stories of who we are, where we have been, and how we arrived here, what we once knew, what we wish we knew; when we stop retelling of the past, our imagining of our future, and the long, long task of incenting an identity every single second of our lives - Native Americans did not enter the canonical field of American literature until 1969, when Kiowa N. Scott Momaday won the Pulitzer Prize - Prior to 1969, Non-Indians for the most part were telling Indians story -

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
