Indigenous Peoples Bookbox (US)-sign up

I collected about half a boxful of (fiction and non fiction) books on Indigenous Peoples of North & South America, and wondered if anyone else would be interested? Would be open to all books on indigenous people, not just the ones in North and South America.

If there is enough interest in the US, comment below I’ll try to round out the books. I would perhaps mail around January/February 2018.

I have a few books that would fit this theme
Profile Image
to get them from TBR to AVL.
But I am definitely interested.

I could do this one; have stumbled across some unexpected titles that might qualify!

I have a couple books that fit this category. How large would the box be? My preference would be for a lighter box, due to postage.

I think it should be a lighter box-definitely lighter than the last few I’ve done. The box I have now is 10 1/2” w x 12” l x 8 1/2” d. It’s a fairly small box

Are the above bcers ready for the bookbox? Thinking of putting together a mailing list soon if everyone is ready.

I have some books read that I just need to register, so I would be ready pretty soon.

Please put me towards the end. I am now focusing on reading books that I can bring to the BC Con in April, but after that I can read more books for this box. I've set aside a few for this box but they are TBR now.

Will mail when I have at least 5 people signed up. I will try as best as possible to order the list to preferences, etc.

I can't join, a.o. because I don't live in the USA. But the subject sounds interesting, so I was wondering if anyone could give me some tips on good titles. Then I can look them up and (hopefully) read them without participating. And are you going to post what will be in the box? Then I can take a look at those titles too :)

I'll eventually post a list of what I'm sending before I mail to the first participant (and this thread will likely be a tally thread on what people are putting in and taking out). Though you can see some of the books I intend to put in the box on my Reserved list.

Recommendations off the top of my head are those written by Sherman Alexie. A lot of what he writes is poetry and revolves around the same characters (though he does have some novels). 3 I would recommend from him would be "Reservation Blues," "Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven," and "The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian".

Thanks! I also put some titles on my wishlist from your far east bookbox :)

FinalsEnd~~a couple of other writers I’d recommend are Louise Erdich(LaRose is her most recent, and The Round House best known) and Joy Harjo ( poet and musician).

I’d like to join in that #4 slot, if I may. Did you decide to be open to other indigenous peoples as well?

Yes it’s open to all indigenous people from all continents.

I actually have a few books about indigenous people that are not Native American, as I'd love to broaden the horizon a bit as well. Just need to have time to read them!

I'm interested in participating. I live in CO.

I’ll post a list of books ASAP (hopefully tonight) and hope to mail this out soon. ;)

Bookbox rules:
*When you get the box please post here and in the companion book (www.bookcrossing.com/journal/2912703) so we can track its progress.
*Journal all books you take out of the box.
*Make sure the books you add have the BCID in them. It seems obvious, but I have had times when folks forgot and I had to try and track them down.
*Books do not have to be the first in a series, but before adding take into consideration how they will read as a stand-alone. If the future reader is going to be completely lost, particularly if the series isn't easily found, please consider finding it a home another way.
*Books can be of any genre (fiction, non fiction, mystery, etc), as long as it fits the theme and isn't overloaded with one genre.
*The theme is Indigenous People from all continents-North America, Australia, etc. While books can be fictitious in nature the culture or the tribes cannot be fictitious (so the Que-Shu People from Dragonlance or Tiger Lily from Peter Pan don't count). Books written about a specific tribe or a person from a tribe all count; and the Indigenous people(s) don't have to be the main protagonist or antagonist, they can be the sidekick or another character within the story.
*Please pass the box on within 2 weeks. If something comes up and you are going to have to hold onto the box a little longer, let me know so we don't have to worry it got lost.
*Feel free to ship the box by the cheapest, slowest postage option.
