Presented more or less as an FAQ, Treuer fills this slim volume with the genuinely curious, ignorant but well-meaning, and downright insulting questions he and other American Indians are asked constantly. From the most basic queries about preferred terminology and definitions to political and cultural inquiries requiring more complex responses, Treuer responds with honestly and with feeling. Having read a fair amount on the topic of Native Americans recently, including Treuer's own brother David's 'Rez Life,' much of the content felt already familiar, though no less engaging or important.
