Sherman Alexie Speaking

Sherman Alexie is not only a great writer, he is also a fantastic speaker.  Addressing issues of race, politics, identity, and culture, Alexie uses humor to get at the truth(s) of contemporary Native American life.  Here are some videos of Alexie that I found on YouTube.

How are his speaking and writing styles similar/different?  How does he challenge popular stereotypes of Native peoples?
