Coyote, road trips, and ghosts, oh my! We’re very excited to start out Black Speculative Fiction Month with a fantastic interview with the Hugo, Campbell, and Nebula award winning Afro-indigenous author, Rebecca Roanhorse. Jen and Becca figuratively sit down with Rebecca to discuss how the Navajo creation story inspired the world-building of her debut novel, Trail of Lightning, how she created a space that was wholly absent of whiteness, why representation of Indigenous people in pop culture is particularly crucial, what her version of Coyote looks like, how Trail of Lightning fits into indigenous futurism, and so much more!
We hope you enjoy the episode!
