The Saturday Writing Quote — a collection of quotes from indigenous writers

SinCSisters in Crime recently published our annual Publishing Summit report, looking this year at the issues surrounding diversity: Report for Change: the 2016 Publishing Summit Report on Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion in the Mystery Community.

And so, I loved this collection of a few quotes from some our best-known and most important writers of Native American or indigenous ancestry, called A Door to Memory. I hope you’ll find them inspiring, too.

“Life is a chance, a story is a chance. That I am here is a chance.”

— Gerald Vizenor, Some Other Frequency: Interviews with Innovative American Authors, 1996
