Series Editor: Robert Warrior
Native American scholars contribute significantly to many established disciplines, and Native American studies increasingly thrives and develops in the academy with innovative research and interdisciplinary studies. Indigenous Americas aims to create a new benchmark of excellence for publications in this field, pushing the traditional boundaries of Native American studies while recognizing its strengths and applications across the academy and society. Ranging from historical and literary studies, to legal and political research of critical interest to Native and non-Native communities, to dynamic commentaries on art history and culture, these books intervene in current Native dialogues and debates with fresh perspectives and comprehensive analysis and research.
