Excerpt from PBS, The Tavis Smiley Show:
Tavis: How do you respond to persons who say that in your writings when you characterize persons on a reservation as an alcoholic, as was the case in your own family, that you yourself are buying into the stereotype of Native Americans?
Alexie: It’s not a stereotype. Alcoholism among Native Americans is a cold, damp reality. I’m an alcoholic. I’ve been sober since 1991. My father was an alcoholic who never sobered up. My mother was an alcoholic until seventeen years ago. My older brother and my little sister are currently alcoholics. When you talk about my aunts, uncles, cousins, first, second and third, grandparents, you’re talking about five people who are currently not drinking.
Tavis: For those who don’t know what the stereotype is even based on, why so much drinking on the reservation?
Alexie: You know, I think alcoholism is a symptom of poverty, desperation, loneliness, and it’s a way to medicate pain. You know, I’ve always joked that I wish we could pump antidepressants into the reservation aquifers and perhaps we’d have less alcoholism. But I really think it is a way to self-medicate. In the absence of other more positive ways to deal with your pain, alcohol is cheap and easy.
