Ceremony Lesson Plan

Relationship to Other Books

Consider Silko’s other novels Almanac of the Dead and Gardens in the Dunes.

Consider other novels written by Native American authors like Flight by Sherman Alexie, The Jailing of Cecelia Capture by Janet Campbell Hale, and The Plague of Doves by Louise Erdrich.

It would be interesting to compare Ceremony to works by African-American authors like Richard Wright (Native Son) and Ralph Ellison (Invisible Man). These and other works cover the effects of racism, both situational and systemic, like Ceremony.
