Scott Momaday's Ancient Child is about a Kiowa painter who exhibits in galleries in New York and Paris.
In James Welch's most recent book, The Indian Lawyer, the hero, a Blackfeet, is a successful corporation lawyer who runs for Congress.
The structure of Momaday's House Made of Dawn is based on Abel's quest to find his place in the tribal community in which he was raised, Walatowa Pueblo.
That place is in question because, although his mother is a member of the tribe, Abel, as an illegitimate child, is an outsider; he does not know who his father is, or even what tribe his father belonged to. When he returns from World War II, he cannot adjust to tribal life.
At the climax of the novel the hero discovers the identity of his grandfather, the man who kept his grandmother alive during the great Blackfeet famine.
