Touched by Thunder is an extraordinary journey of remembering that deeply explores Indigenous experience through autobiography, story, song, poetry, and art. An honored artist and scholar, White Deer weaves an multilayered world of childhood and family, tribal communities, Indian boarding schools, celebrities and presidents, tribal elders and priests, robbers and rioters, Irish and Muslim immigrants and even the prophet Bubba. The swirling text is illuminated with 16 of his original paintings printed in full color, as well as black and white sketches. White Deer’s ingenious and visionary book traverses the fields of history, Indigenous and First Nations studies, memoir, and the arts, and is an engrossing read for a broad audience.
