This paper reviews the novel "Blue Winds Dancing" by Tom Whitecloud, about a young Native American man struggling to decide if he belongs in the white world or the Indian one. The paper describes the cultural conflicts the main character encounters when he leaves his reservation to attend university, and the impact of those conflicts on his journey to find his true voice. While about a particular person from a specific tribe, the novel's theme of identity struggle is universal -- a point which earns Whitecloud high praise from the author of this paper.
From the Paper:"There are important conflicts within "Blue Winds Dancing that come about as a consequence of culture. The narrator of the story is struggling to find where he belongs and who he really is, a basic pursuit in any persons life. He also goes in search of wisdom, an inner wisdom that all people must search for in their lives to give it meaning. He journeys from his home in Wisconsin to attend a college that is predominantly attended by white people. We, the readers, travel deeply into the inner mind, thoughts and emotions of this young man's strife."
