He has written twelve books of poems and two works of fiction: Wild Indians & Other Creatures, short stories, and Skins, a novel. Skins was produced as a feature film with a theatrical release in 2002.

"Adrian C. Louis is a one-man wrecking crew who will change the face of poetry until we all wake up and honor him. No poet does what he does. No poet attempts what he attempts. His poetry is everything we were educated to turn our backs on because of the fear of facing American truths. His visions and choice of words are rhythmic, defiant, and timeless."
