Why Indigenous Literatures Matter

2018 INDIES Finalist
Finalist, Political and Social Sciences (Adult Nonfiction)

Challenges readers to critically consider and rethink assumptions about Indigenous literature, history, and politics, not forgetting the emotional connections of shared humanity and the power of story to effect personal and social change. Written with a generalist reader firmly in mind, but addressing issues of interest to specialists in the field, this book welcomes new audiences to Indigenous literary studies, offering more seasoned readers a renewed appreciation for these literary traditions.
