“These tales capture the humor and themes of traditional Diné literature. . . . The collection resonates with deep cultural authenticity.”—Enrique Lamadrid, author of Juan the Bear and the Water of Life: La Acequia de Juan del Oso
Focusing on central Mexico and the Andes (colonial New Spain and Peru), the contributors deepen scholarly knowledge of colonial history and literature, emphasizing the different ways people became and lived their lives as “indios” in this new study.
The essays collected in this book, addressing both the original edition of Storyteller and the 2012 revision, use the growth in understanding of Native American literature in general and of Silko’s work in particular to unpack this fascinating work and its critical reception over the years.
The Encyclopedia of the American Indian in the Twentieth Century provides a comprehensive overview of this dramatic process through profiles of key individuals, organizations, government policies, and events that have defined Native history since 1900.
“What roles do literary and community texts and social media play in the memory, politics, and lived experience of those dispossessed?” Fitzgerald asks this question in her introduction and sets out to answer it in her study of literature and social media by (primarily) Native women who are writing about and often actively protesting against displacement caused both by forced relocation and environmental disaster.
This reference edition profiles each tribe’s history and culture, with detailed information about their communities, natural resources, enterprises, and environmental concerns, as well as their contact information.
