Louise Erdrich (Chippewa) (b. 1954)

Classroom Issues and Strategies
One problem in teaching Love Medicine is the intensity of religious experience, which many students in today's secular society may have difficulty relating to. Another is the surrealistic imagery that Marie Lazarre uses in describing her relationship with Sister Leopolda. And yet a third is understanding the historical and cultural context of reservation life at this period of time in the 1930s. In terms of the historical and cultural context, I would point out to students that Indian reservations in the 1930s were notorious for their poverty, their high mortality rate, their chronic unemployment, and the destruction of the fabric of Native American social and cultural forms. One of the principal policies of the United States government was to transform Native Americans into carbon copies of Anglo-Americans, and one of the principal ways that they hoped to accomplish this, ever since the Grant administration in the 1870s, was through religion. During the 1870s, the Native American communities were allocated among the various major Christian sects, and missionary activity was understood to be an agent of social and cultural transformation. The objective was to get rid of the Indian while saving the man. Culture was imagined as a number of practices and behaviors and customs, whichif they could be changedwould eliminate all the historic obstacles to the Indians' participation in Anglo-American culture. Of course, if they were eliminated, so would the Indian nest be eliminated. Religion then is hardly a simple spiritual force, but an agent of the interests of the Euro-American majority. Such an understanding, I think, should help students appreciate the intensity with which Marie and Sister Leopolda enter their confrontation.

The Glass and the Bowl The father pours the milk from his glass
into the cup of the child,
and as the child drinks
the whiteness, opening
her throat to the good taste
eagerly, the father is filled.
He closes the refrigerator
on its light, he walks out
under the bowl of frozen darkness
and nothing seems withheld from him. Overhead, the burst ropes of stars, the buckets of craters, the chaos of heaven, absence of refuge in the design. Yet down here, his daughter in her quilts, under patterns of diamonds and novas, full of rich milk, sleeping.

I was looking down the hill, waiting for the rain to start, when his white car pulled into our yard. The driver was a big man, built long and square just like the Oldsmobile. He was wearing a tie and a shirt that was not yet sweaty. I noticed this as I was walking back down the hill. I was starting to notice these things about men the way their hips moved when they hauled feed or checked fence lines. The way their forearms looked so tanned and hard when they rolled up their white sleeves after church. I was looking at men not with intentions, because I didn't know yet what I would have done with one if I got him, but with a studious mind.
I was looking at them just to figure, for pure survival, the way a girl does. The way a farmer, which my dad was before he failed, gets to know the lay of the land. He loves his land, so he has to figure how to cultivate it what it needs in each season, how much abuse it will sustain, what in the end it will yield. And I, too, in order to increase my yield and use myself right, was taking my lessons. I never tried out my information, though, until the man arrived, pulled with a slow crackle into our lake-pebble driveway. He got out and looked at me where I stood in the shade of my mother's butterfly bush. I'm not saying that I flirted right off. I didn't know how to. I walked into the sunlight and looked him in the eye.

    "Where the Maps Stopped": The Aesthetics of Borders in Louise Erdrich's Love Medicine and Tracks
    Style Spring, 1999 by Rita Ferrari
    The language of margins and borders marks a position of paradox: both inside and outside. - Linda Hutcheon (Poetics 66) In her novels Love Medicine and Tracks, Louise Erdrich engages the paradox of employing and glorifying the oral tradition and its culturally cohesive function by inscribing this tradition.(1) The text that simultaneously asserts and denies the presence of voice makes explicit the paradoxical presence and absence that is the condition of all language, of all texts as they compose words to call forth a world. In Erdrich's work this paradox plays itself out in representing a people, and their culture, who have been unrepresented or represented in manipulative ways in the service of a dominant group's ideology. Her work thus questions the politics of representation. In Border Theory, David E. Johnson and Scott Michaelsen complicate the premises of border studies that began with a focus on the U.S.-Mexico border, but has expanded to include "Latin American, Caribbean, and internal U.S. borders [. . .].the U.S.-Canadian border, U.S. sectionalism, and American immigrants' diasporic experience" while employing "anthropological, sociological, feminist, Marxist, European postmodernist and poststructuralist, postcolonial, ethnohistorical, and race/ethnicity theory" (2). Johnson and Michaelsen write that their volume "jeopardizes not just the border, whether of political-geographic or metaphoric realities, but the limits of any attempt to theorize the border" (29). In discussing the border between Anglo and Amerindian cultures, they suggest thinking

ERDRICH, Louise The Beet Queen NY, Henry Holt, (1986). The advance reading copy of her second novel, and the second in the sequence of novels that began with Love Medicine . Because of the success of her first novel, this title was aggressively promoted, and an advance reading copy was rushed to press as a promotional giveaway for the American Booksellers Association's annual convention. The author was still in the process of making the last revisions to the novel, so the text of this advance copy varies from that of the final published book. Signed by both Erdrich and Michael Dorris , her husband: both writers credited the other with virtually co-writing their novels. Slight spine fading, else fine in wrappers. All books are first printings of first editions or first American editions unless otherwise noted. See more items by ERDRICH, Louise

36. Louise Erdrich: Naked Woman Playing Chopin: A Fargo Romance
Short story by the author, appearing in The Barcelona Review. Originally published in The New Yorker.
s issue 34: january - february 2003 author bio Naked Woman Playing Chopin: A Fargo Romance
Louise Erdrich
How surprised he was to find, one afternoon, as though sown by the wind and summoned by his dreams, a woman standing barefoot, starved and frowsy in the doorway of his barn. She was a pale flower, nearly bald and dressed in a rough shift. He blinked stupidly at the vision. Light poured around her like smoke and swirled at her gesture of need. She spoke.
"Ich habe Hunger."
In the center of the town on the other side of the river there stood a convent made of yellow bricks. Hauled halfway across Minnesota from Little Falls by pious drivers, they still held the peculiar sulfurous moth gold of the clay outside that town. The word "Fleisch" was etched in shallow letters on each one: Fleisch Company Brickworks. Donated to the nuns at cost. The word, of course, was covered by mortar each time a brick was laid. However, because she had organized a few discarded bricks behind the convent into the base for a small birdbath, one of the younger nuns knew, as she gazed at the mute order of the convent's wall, that she lived within the secret repetition of that one word.
Sister Cecellia, however, was emptied. Thinned. It was as though her soul were neatly removed by a drinking straw and siphoned into the green pool of quiet that lay beneath the rippling cascades of notes. One day, exquisite agony built and released, built higher, released more forcefully until slow heat spread between her fingers, up her arms, stung at the points of her bound breasts, and then shot straight down.

38. Erdrich's Tracks
Essay discussing the healing power of humor in author s works.
Native American Humor: Powerful Medicine in Louise Erdrich's Tracks by Leslie Gregory Tracks , humor provides powerful medicine as the Chippewa tribe struggles for their physical, spiritual, and cultural survival at the beginning of the twentieth century. While the ability to approach life with a sense of humor is not unique to any one society, it is an intrinsic quality of Native American life. “There is, and always has been, humor among Indians . . . ” (Lincoln 22). In deference to their history, this can best be described as survival humor, one which “transcends the void, questions fatalism, and outlasts suffering” (Lincoln 45). Through their capacity to draw common strength from shared humor, Native Americans demonstrate how “kinship interconnects comically . . . . [in] a kind of personal tribalism that begins with two people, configurates around families, composes itself in extended kin and clan, and ends up defining a culture” (Lincoln 63). In Tracks , the power of Native American humor to profoundly affect human experience is portrayed through the characters of Nanapush and Fleur. In his role as “Nanabush” the trickster, a central figure in Chippewa (Ojibwa) storytelling, Nanapush demonstrates the power of Native American humor in his own life, when he challenges the gods and cheats death by playing a trick on them: “During the year of the sickness, when I was the last one left, I saved myself by starting a story . . . . I got well by talking. Death could not get a word in edgewise, grew discouraged, and traveled on” (Erdrich 46). The trickster figure is characterized as a man of many guises, dualistic in nature—good and bad—and often considered quite a lover. He is a survivor, physically and psychologically. As one who endures, he transcends the temporal and functions as an affirmation of the self. The trickster is also “central to the tribe’s worldview,” with power that extends beyond himself, guiding his people toward a view of themselves and of

The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse
By Louise Erdrich
HarperCollins, $26
ISBN 0060187271
Send this interview to a friend Louise Erdrich explores mysteries and miracles on the reservation INTERVIEW BY ALDEN MUDGE When Louise Erdrich finished writing The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse, she went back and read through the works of William Faulkner. "I do that every so often," Erdrich says during a call to her home in Minnesota. "And I always dip into Proust. And then I dip out of Proust." This makes sense, in a literary sort of way. To immerse oneself in the most luminous of the novels in Erdrich's Dakota cycle Love Medicine The Beet Queen Tracks (1988) and, now, The Last Report on the Miracles at Little No Horse is, in some ways, to plunge into a Proustian stream, where time flows backward as easily as it flows forward. Even more to the point, over the years, any number of reviewers have seen parallels between Erdrich's creation in novel after novel of a mythical Ojibwe Indian reservation and its environs near the Minnesota-North Dakota border, and Faulkner's creation of his fictional Yoknapatawpha County, Mississippi. "I've finally figured out that I'm just working on one long novel," Erdrich says in response to a question about the layers of legend and meaning that accumulate with each new novel. "I think it is useful to have read the other books. But I try very hard to make each book its own book. It is its own book. But they all connect in some way."
