"An urgently needed collection that brings together some of the most provocative 'word drummers' in Indigenous literary criticism, from E. Pauline Johnson's rage against the appropriation of voice, to Qwo-Li Driskill's righteous defense of the 'sovereign erotic, ' to Jeannette Armstrong's powerful invocation of 'Land Speaking.' These 26 essays will surprise and delight, challenge and confront, enrich and amaze a diverse range of readers of Indigenous literature--students, teachers, scholars, and curious generalists alike." -- Sophie McCall, Simon Fraser University "Heather Macfarlane and Armand Garnet Ruffo have assembled here a lifesaver for teachers and students of Indigenous literatures in Canada. By gathering in one volume essential essays derived from Indigenous epistemologies and ways of being, they offer cultural pathways that can help readers understand and delight in the renaissance (resonance) of Indigenous literary writing in the part of Turtle Island we call Canada." -- Daniel Coleman, McMaster University "Our storytellers are not only narrative artists but theorizers, philosophers, and intellectuals who create, fortify, and sustain communities. Macfarlane and Ruffo illustrate this beautifully in this collection, showing how literary criticism is not only the most vibrant and dynamic gift from Indigenous intellectuals, but the most exciting." -- Niigaanwewidam Sinclair, University of Manitoba "Clearly, Heather Macfarlane and Armand Garnet Ruffo's edited collection of twenty-six influential essays has a wide relevance and thus a wide range of applications, not only for teachers and readers of Indigenous literature and Indigenous studies, but also for teachers and readers of Canadian literature and the humanities more broadly ... From beginning to end, this collection has an uncannily logical flow and dialectical thrust, almost seamlessly connecting discussions of traditional knowledge, history, ideology, appropriation, orality, diaspora, gender and sexuality, and residential schools, among other issues." -- Jeff Fedoruk, Canadian Literature

Reseña del editor:

The texts gathered in this collection have served to trace the development of Indigenous literatures while highlighting major trends and themes. The anthology collects 26 indispensable critical essays, from E. Pauline Johnson to Daniel Heath Justice. Though Canadian critics and writers are emphasized, some key works of Native American literary criticism are also included. The essays explore issues that still reverberate in the study of Indigenous literature: appropriation of voice, stereotyping, traditional knowledge, language, land, spirituality, orality, colonialism, post-colonialism, gender, hybridity, authenticity, resistance, and ethical scholarship.
