Abstract:

"The essays gathered in this volume celebrate the founding of the American Indian Workshop (AIW) twenty-five years ago as a European forum for Native American studies. We present this collection of ongoing debates on the interlaced and interlocking arena of Native American studies and its complicated relation with Native Americans themselves . These debates tie in with such questions as: Can Native American studies shake off its past and deal with the complexity of political and academic issues in the present? Why, by whom and for whom is research conducted within this domain and who decides what the next step should be? This volume is a modest response to these questions, to the validation and substantiation of the cat's cradle of practices of the many disciplines that comprise Native American studies, and an attempt to ask the right questions, to get past the imperial categories, and to thoughtfully mediate and reorientate perspectives."--BOOK JACKET.
