NVTV – Deborah A Miranda (Chumash), Author of “Bad Indians”

Cihuapilli Rose Amador interviews
Deborah A. Miranda (Chumash) on
Native Voice TV show.

 Deborah is one ‘Bad Indian’. Her memoir refuses categorization in its unique structure, gorgeous poetry, and painful story of resistance, strength, and survival. Part documentary of Mission Indians and part coming of age story, her book reaches back to the beginning of colonization of her ancestors to insist on an identity, both tribal and sexual, both painful and celebratory, of a people who many in California and the world relegated to extinction. Miranda was kind enough to offer generous answers about her extraordinary memoir
‘Bad Indians: A Tribal Memoir’.
