The inconvenient Indian : a curious account of native people in North America by Thomas King( Book )
9 editions published between 2012 and 2013 in English and held by 623 libraries worldwide
In this book the author offers a deeply knowing, darkly funny, unabashedly opinionated, and utterly unconventional account of Indian-White relations in North America since initial contact; in the process, he refashions old stories about historical events and figures. Ranging freely across the centuries and the Canada-U.S. border, he debunks fabricated stories of Indian savagery and White heroism, takes an oblique look at Indians (and cowboys) in film and popular culture, wrestles with the history of Native American resistance and his own experiences as a Native rights activist, and articulates a profound, revolutionary understanding of the cumulative effects of ever-shifting laws and treaties on Native peoples and lands. At once a "history" and the complete subversion of a history, this is a critical and personal meditation that the author has conducted over the past 50 years about what it means to be "Indian" in North America. This book distills the insights gleaned from that meditation, weaving the curiously circular tale of the relationship between non-Natives and Natives in the centuries since the two first encountered each other

A short history of Indians in Canada : stories by Thomas King( Book )
11 editions published between 2005 and 2013 in English and held by 269 libraries worldwide
"A flock of Indians has just flown smack into the side of a Bay Street skyscraper. Again. It's up to Bill and Rudy to tag the live ones, nurse them to health at the shelter and release them back into the wild. Thomas King is back in fabulous, fantastical form in this latest collection of short stories, some new, some previously published. Compiled in acomic tour de force, all of the selections in A Short History of Indians in Canada are showcases for King's wholly original brand of imagination and wit. In 20 tales, King pokes a sharp stick into the gears of the native myth-making machine, slyly exposing the raw underbelly of both historical and contemporary native-white relationships. Through the laughter, these stories shimmer brightly with the universal truths that unite us." Book Desc
