Favorite Kindle Quotes: Adam Fortunate Eagle

As an English and Theater educator from South Dakota, I appreciated the focus on Indigenous Studies. Recently, I re-read Adam Fortunate Eagle’s novel Pipestone: My Life at an Indian Boarding School. Here are a few great quotes:

“I realize there will be critics of my book; however, I will only listen to those individuals who are over seventy years of age and who were boarding school children themselves..”

Adam fortunate Eagle, Pipestone: My Life at An Indian Boarding School

“…a beautiful policy expressed in the Northwest Ordinance of 1789: ‘The utmost good faith shall always be observed towards the Indians: their land and property shall never be taken from them without their consent; and in their property, rights and liberty, they shall never be invaded or disturbed.'”

Adam fortunate Eagle, Pipestone: My Life at An Indian Boarding School

“As we leave the reservation, the tall pine trees look like dark warriors, standing there and watching us go.”

Adam fortunate Eagle, Pipestone: My Life at An Indian Boarding School
If you’ve not read Adam Fortunate Eagle’s work, I’d definitely recommend Pipestone! He tells some hard truths with a sly smile. Check him out in goodreads.
