Ever Geimausaddle, a young man with mixed Kiowa, Cherokee, and Mexican heritage, is at the center of Oscar Hokeah’s affecting novel Calling for a Blanket Dance. Moving between the voices of Ever and his 11 family members, Hokeah explores what happens after the young protagonist’s father is injured at the U.S.-Mexico border. By blending the family member’s perspectives, Hokeah reveals how Ever marks the turning point between the old generation and the new, both carrying and recovering from intergenerational trauma. —Laura ZornosaB
