Table of contents
"The book defines and questions theoretical ideas drawn from Indigenous epistemologies as well as Western critical theory, using these with multiple examples of texts and artworks to demonstrate the vitality
of Indigenous survivance in the face of overwhelming odds. The four parts make a coherent whole, a web of ideas that intersect and speak to each other throughout the volume. Native North America in (Trans)motion merits reading and re-reading for its sophisticated insights not only into Native American studies, but also into how globalized, transnational Indigenous Studies can help to shape and lead the humanities in the future. This work will be invaluable to scholars, artists and students in disciplines far beyond the arbitrary borders that have ghettoized Indigenous Studies in the past." - David O'Donnell, Victoria University of Wellington, Recherche litteraire/Literary Research (vol. 32, summer 2016)
