520    Beth Piatote's luminous debut collection opens with a 
       feast, grounding its stories in the landscapes and 
       lifeworlds of the Native Northwest, exploring the 
       inventive and unforgettable pattern of Native American 
       life in the contemporary world  Told with humor, subtlety,
       and spareness, the mixed-genre works of Beth Piatote's 
       first collection find unifying themes in the strength of 
       kinship, the pulse of longing, and the language of return.
       A woman teaches her niece to make a pair of beaded 
       earrings while ruminating on a fractured relationship. An 
       eleven-year-old girl narrates the unfolding of the Fish 
       Wars in the 1960s as her family is propelled to its front 
       lines. In 1890, as tensions escalate at Wounded Knee, two 
       young men at college-one French and the other Lakota-each 
       contemplate a death in the family. In the final, haunting 
       piece, a Nez Perce-Cayuse family is torn apart as they 
       debate the fate of ancestral remains in a moving revision 
       of the Greek tragedy Antigone.  Formally inventive and 
       filled with vibrant characters, The Beadworkers draws on 
       Indigenous aesthetics and forms to offer a powerful, 
       sustaining vision of Native life.  "The Beadworkers is a 
       feast of wit and storytelling. I read it once to see where
       Piatote would go next. Twice to savor the emotional, 
       cultural, and structural resonance of this wonderful 
       work."  "A collection that gives voice to what is so often
       left unsaid."  "Marvelous…The Beadworkers is an intricate
       and poignant set of meditations on how to move forward 
       with identity and hope intact while reconciling with loss,
       both collective and personal."   "Gripping and utterly 
       readable…The stories here are wide-ranging but encompass 
       many perspectives of Indigenous people in North America." 
       "Mixes poetry, verse, and prose to form an impressive 
       reflection on the lives of modern Native Americans…This 
       beautiful collection announces Piatote as a writer to 
       watch."  "Piatote draws the reader in with spare and 
       perceptive language and resonate empathy for each 
       struggling yet resilient character."  "Beth Piatote 
       strings together stories like the intricate strands of a 
       handmade necklace…The collected pieces of The Beadworkers
       explore place and identity in vibrant scenes. Throughout, 
       Piatote reveals Native American life in contexts modern, 
       historic and mythical."  "A poignant and challenging look 
       at the way the past and present collide."
