Native Writers and Illustrators on Twitter

Do you have a Twitter account? Do you follow or want to follow Native writers and illustrators? Here's a list! Some tweet a lot, some a little. Some tweet about books, some tweet about their nations, and some tweet about a wide range of topics.

If you know of Native writers/illustrators who I haven't listed here, submit their name/Twitter ID in a comment and I'll add them to this list. The list started out, primarily as a list of Native writers or illustrators whose work has been discussed on AICL. It has evolved over time. Now, it also includes many who I've not written about because their work is for adult readers. I'm adding them here because reading Native writers--regardless of what they write--can be of enormous help in understanding what Native writers choose to write about. There's a lot to learn from their fiction, but from their tweets, too. And it includes Native activists and scholars who I follow. I learn from them (and you can, too).
