alterNatives by Drew Hayden Taylor
A very liberal contemporary couple - Angel, an urban Native science fiction writer and Colleen, a "non-practising" jewish intellectual who teaches Native literature - are having a dinner party. The guests at this little soiree are couples that represent what by now have become the cliched extremes of both societes - Angel's former radical Native activist buddies and Colleen's environmentally concerned vegetarian/veterinarian friends. The menu is, of course, short-hand for the irreconcilable cultural differences about to come to a head: moose roast and vegetarian lasagna.
