Comments about the book:

The Last Puerto Rican Indian is a great contribution to the rising Indigenous Caribbean/Diaspora literature. Mr. Gonzalez who pulls no punches, takes us on a unique and engaging journey, intertwined between past and present. I especially enjoyed ''Thank you, Mr. Columbus'' and ''Voice of a Hero.'' The varying poems will appeal to Natives and Non-Natives alike.

—Jorge Estevez, National Museum of the American Indian

The Last Puerto Rican Indian is beautifully written with a multiplicity of voices that capture both profound sadness and passionate defiance. Rich with spiritual meaning, Bobby Gonzalez brings us closer to the indigenous men, women and children of the Americas as he harmonizes between the past and the present, traveling great distances in time from before the conquest, through mass genocide and the resistance, to the contemporary and beyond. Affirming the enduring strength of our heritage, Gonzalez declares, 'The last Puerto Rican Indian has not yet been born.' "

—Iris Morales, former minister of information for the Young Lords Party, a New York-based Puerto Rican political/social action group.

The Last Puerto Rican Indian is written for young adults and those who are new to the study of the indigenous cultures of the Caribbean. Included in the book is a reading list for further research.
