Mariquita talks with Ursula Pike about her book, An Indian Among Los Indígenas: A Native Travel Memoir, published this year by Heyday Books. Pike’s memoir explores her time in Bolivia as a Native woman working as a Peace Corp volunteer, and asks questions about whom we help and why, explores the colonial legacy of aid, and asserts the humanity of those individuals who, too often, provide only a backdrop in a genre frequently lacking in diverse voices.
