"Thomas King has spent a lifetime thinking about what it means to be Aboriginal in North America. The author of a number of acclaimed books, including the novel Green Grass, Running Water, King also created and starred in the popular CBC Radio show Dead Dog Café. In 2003, he became the first aboriginal person to give the Massey Lectures.
In his new book, The Inconvenient Indian: A Curious Account of Native People in North America, King shares the fruits of his extended reflection on native identity. It's part humour, part history, part analysis and part personal meditation. King recently dropped by Studio Q to talk about the book."
