Lions Roar : November 2008
SHAMBHALA SUN NOVEMBER 2008 30 do. She’s hilarious. Having her along on this part of my tour has been great because she reminds me that instead of just staring off blankly and becoming moody, which I tend to do, I could be playing the way she is. She plays with everything. If she’s eating something, she makes it into a joke or a story. I think she has that basic sense of story that is in all of us. She always wants to know more and see more and think more. What do you do to get your creative juices flowing? I drink a lot of tea. (Laughs) No, I’m serious. I believe you. It helps me too. I’m drinking some right now. So am I—some great Tazo tea. Tea really does it for me. Is there anything that squashes your creativity? I make sure I don’t try to clean the house. If I’d started cleaning, I would never have become a writer. It’s a female choice—you can either have a clean house or you can be a writer (laughs). If you’re cleaning your house, stop. I leave my house very messy. But you have a bookstore. I don’t manage it. I have a daughter who works there. She knows all about selling now. Bookselling is going to change drastically. We’re looking at a time in which the medium of the book—the physical presence of the book—is changing, and the way people buy books is changing. But I really believe that it is important to have a bookstore that is a visible presence, a place where people can go and connect over books. Buying and reading books on- line is good and interesting, but I think we need both the virtual and the tangible. That’s why I have the bookstore. I also have it because it’s a place for distributing and selling Native language materials. It’s very important to have people learning Native languages to try to keep them alive. So you specialize in books by Native Americans? Yes, that’s what makes us special compared to other bookstores. But we’re also a general bookstore because we serve a wide clientele in our neighborhood—anybody who wants to come in to find a book. So we’re careful about choosing our books. We have a great chil- dren’s selection and we also sell Native American jewelry and art. I understand you work with translating and publishing Native American texts. Yes, we’ve published one memoir in Ojibwe and we have the rights to several other books with our Birchbark Press. We’re go- ing to continue publishing works in Ojibwe. ♦ To Register: 303.245.4800 • 800.603.3117
