“Pointing With Lips” by Dana Lone Hill Book Review by Sara Jumping Eagle
Dana Lone Hill, as an author and storyteller has done what so many struggle to do – to teach while entertaining, to open hearts without preaching or prying. In the same legacy of the best storytellers, you won’t want to go to sleep once the story starts. While we are absorbed in the family life and love life of “Sincere” – we also learn some of the real history of the Lakota people, the real perspective of how hope and resilience arise amongst the contemporary issues of alcoholism, rez dogs, commodities, boarding school legacy, fried bologna, controversial Black Hills Gold, domestic violence, art, homosexuality, the nostalgic smell of burning trash, the fine art of watecha, the pain and flashbacks of sexual abuse, the beautiful taste of chokecherries in the summer, the hateful sting of racism, the wonderful saving grace of tribal colleges, and most of all – the underlying current of love for family and the people.
