Publisher's Description

Native is about identity, soul-searching, and the never-ending journey of finding ourselves and finding God. As both a citizen of the Potawatomi Nation and a Christian, Kaitlin Curtice offers a unique perspective on these topics. In this book, she shows how reconnecting with her Potawatomi identity both informs and challenges her faith.

Curtice draws on her personal journey, poetry, imagery, and stories of the Potawatomi people to address themes at the forefront of today's discussions of faith and culture in a positive and constructive way. She encourages us to embrace our own origins and to share and listen to each other's stories so we can build a more inclusive and diverse future. Each of our stories matters for the church to be truly whole. As Curtice shares what it means to experience her faith through the lens of her Indigenous heritage, she reveals that a vibrant spirituality has its origins in identity, belonging, and a sense of place.

Endorsements

"Kaitlin Curtice is one of the braver writers I know. She won't smooth any edges for you and she won't let you change the subject, but she'll support you digging as deeply for your roots as she has for hers.” --Barbara Brown Taylor, bestselling author of Holy Envy and Learning to Walk in the Dark

"In the pages of Native, Kaitlyn B. Curtice is a poet, professor, storyteller, and unapologetic truth teller. This book is required reading for all those committed to learning the truth about the land we live on and the institutions we live inside of. It both stretched me and comforted me--it called me out and called me home. Curtice is a vital artist and teacher, and Native is her most important offering yet. It will remain on my shelf forever." --Glennon Doyle, author of Untamed and founder of Together Rising

"There is no doubt Christianity has been the handmaiden to the destruction of Indigenous nations. Native is more than Kaitlyn Curtice's testament. It is an indigenization of faith, and more important, a moral call not only for the Christian church but for everyone to reckon with the genocidal legacies of US settler colonialism and African slavery. As she humbly puts it, decolonization is an invitation and a gift for humankind to re-establish correct relations with each other--and the earth." –Nick Estes, cofounder of The Red Nation and author of Our History Is the Future: Standing Rock versus the Dakota Access Pipeline, and the Long Tradition of Indigenous Resistance

"In Native, Curtice takes the reader along as she bravely weaves together her spiritual, tribal, religious, cultural, and familial history into a cord that anchors her as she makes sense of her self, her world, and her identity. After reading this book, I may just touch a tree now and again and see it as prayer. I’m so grateful for Curtice’s voice." --Nadia Bolz-Weber, bestselling author, speaker, and public theologian

"In Native, Curtice reminds us why our humanity matters--to explore the divine, to practice solidarity with one another, and to learn to be humble caretakers of this world. She is a brave truth-teller, a prophetic voice we need to be listening to, and Native is a book that will guide us toward a better future." --Richard Rohr, OFM, Center for Action and Contemplation

"Native is both an expansive meditation on faith through a Potawatomi lens and a powerful vision of living in relationship with divinity and the world--one that is urgently needs today. Curtice is an essential voice." –Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg, author of Surprised by God and Nurture the Wow
