Sixties Scoop

 

Books, Fiction


Indian Killer

By Sherman Alexie, 2008.

From Amazon.com: "The main character is an Indian serial killer who incites racial tension by murdering whites in retribution for his people's history. The killer leaves clear signs of his motives by scalping his victims, and leaving feathers as gestures of Indian defiance. The killer is a conflicted creation--raised by loving white parents, but twisted by loss of his identity as an Indian." (Grade 9 and up)
