News Flash: The News Wolves in Town

I can not tell a lie. I am a Twilight junkie. But not for the reasons you might think. I LOVE the wolves and Native American aspects. So my urge to squeal was hard to suppress when I found this article link on Confessions of a Twicrack Addict:
Snidbit: "Spencer said he’s played his share of historical American Indian characters—what he half-jokingly called “the leather and feather” parts. "What’s cool about New Moon," he explained, "is that we're in a contemporary setting." Korey agreed: "I think it’s important for people to know that there is a Native American community that’s very vibrant, and very now. We're sort of like a new Native America."

  2. Interesting article. I've always gotten so wound up in the vampire/werewolf thing I never looked at the history of the tribe or nationality of it.

  3. hey, fellow TWILIGHT fan!
    *waves*
    I think wolves-Native American mythology element is the strongest in the series--Stephenie did a good job creating it. I'm glad to see another TWI fan out there :D

  4. My favourite part out of all four books was the part about the legend behind the shape shifters. I loved it. And what Spencer says is true. Thanks for sharing.

  7. I think one of the attractions of Twilight is it's setting... is that of our real urban life. Makes it easier for a reader to connect with. That it also highlights a minority in our midst which we know so little about (shame on us) is a good side effect of the story!

  10. Love this! I completely agree, especially as someone who has quite a bit of Native American ancestry it's nice to see things updated. Besides, I can't lie either, I too am a Twilight junkie! :o)
