Sherman Alexie Says Arizona Has Made Native Books Sacred

Sherman Alexie threw his two cents into the Tucson book ban and ethnic studies ban in Arizona recently on The Progressive website. He says that by banning books, the state has made them “sacred documents.”

“In the effort to vanish our books, Arizona has actually given them enormous power. Arizona has made our books sacred documents now.”
