My main specialities are in Native Literature, Creative Writing, and American Literature. Most of my significant publications are in fiction and consist of novels: Medicine River (1990), Green Grass Running Water (1993), Truth and Bright Water (1999), short story collections: One Good Story, That One (1993) and A Short History of Indians in Canada (2005). In 2003, I gave the Massey Lectures which were published in book form as The Truth About Stories. Most of my interests lie in the area of creative writing and Native studies. My current research is focused on a narrative history of Indians in Canada.
