  • From the Editors
    • Abstract: tawâw! Welcome to volume 32, issues 1–2, of Studies in American Indian Literatures. The idea of space and who is deemed worthy of support is something we've been thinking about. So-called polite Canadians wrung their hands over the "inconvenience" of Indigenous peoples and accomplices occupying entrances to ports, intersections, and railways. It didn't take long to see how settlers really feel about Indigenous peoples asserting sovereignty. And we're in the middle of a pandemic, which will also significantly impact reserves and remote communities without access to clean drinking water and grocery stores. In 2009, the Canadian government sent body bags to remote Manitoba communities when they demanded more help with ... Read More

  • Re- Framing, De-Framing, and Shattering the Frames: Indigenous Writers and
           Artists on Representing Residential School Narratives
    • Abstract: During a panel session titled "Best Practices in Indigenous Publishing" in 2017, the late Cree author Gregory Younging1 talked about the tension between what he calls the "Extraction and reclamation of Indigenous cultural expressions."2 He argues that much of the history and practice of publishing Indigenous literatures in Canada has been about extraction. In referring to extraction he is invoking not only the appropriation of Indigenous stories, but also the mining of resources from the land and the taking of children from their families and communities (Taylor, Gathering 24).3 Younging goes on to describe how Indigenous writers are now turning toward "reclamation," taking back what's been taken, and asserting ...

  • U nojil a ch'i'ibal: Briceida Cuevas Cob's Poetic Empowerment of Yucatec
           Maya Women
    • Abstract: In her recent book Revealing Rebellion in Abiayala, Hannah Burdette proposes a unifying framework to understand the interactions between Indigenous literatures and social movements across the Western Hemisphere.1 Her analysis suggests that writing serves a dual function for Native political struggles: on one hand, Indigenous texts make visible (visibilizar) ways of knowing and being erased by colonial violence. On the other, these works envision (visualizar) Indigenous modernities outside of and alternative to the logic of coloniality/modernity (6). The interplay between recording and creating Indigenous realities transforms literature into a potent space for "critical revitalization," the remaking of tradition to ... Read More

  • "Language to Reach With": Layli Long Soldier's WHEREAS Connects Words to
    • Abstract: As a National Book Award finalist and recipient of many other accolades, Layli Long Soldier's debut book of poetry, WHEREAS (2017), has been praised for its messages about the way language participates in reality, particularly in response to the 2009 congressional apology to Native American people. Reviews of the book acknowledge the astuteness with which the poet criticizes and interacts with this spurious document. Natalie Diaz states that the book is "an excavation, reorganization and documentation of a structure of language that has talked the United States through its many acts of violence. This book troubles our consideration of the language we use to carry our personal and national narratives." Similarly ... Read More

  • What Looks like a Grave: Native and Anarchist Place-Making in New England
    • Abstract: When the Pilgrims first landed on Cape Cod in 1620, they discovered 'a place like a grave'. Digging it up, what troubled the graverobbers were not these Indian things, but the contents of a larger bundle: a blond European sailor, shipwrecked or abandoned on the Massachusetts coast.In the time I have been writing this essay, preparations for the commemoration of the 400th anniversary of the voyage of the Mayflower have been ramping up on both sides of the pond with a four-nation consortium of the UK, US, Netherlands, and Wampanoag Nations coming together to create hundreds of events that highlight the political, cultural, and historical significance of the Pilgrims' journey.1 For instance, from Plymouth, UK, an ...

  • "Now for the Indian Story": Reconceiving George Bent as a Warrior-Writer
    • Abstract: When advertising its upcoming October 1905 issue, the Colorado Springs periodical The Frontier: A Journal of Early Days and Their Thrilling Events declared, "We have read the other side of the story. Let us see what the red man has to say about it." The "red man" in question was George Bent (1843–1918), a sixty-two-year-old Southern Cheyenne writer, historian, translator, Confederate veteran, Crooked-Lance (or Bone-Scraper) Society warrior, and Sand Creek Massacre survivor.1 His "story" was "Forty Years with the Cheyennes," a six-part autobiography that ran as the Frontier's leading article from October 1905 to March 1906.2 Despite his literary ambitions, "Forty Years" is one of just two publications that appeared ...

  • Unghosting Bones: Resistant Play(s) versus the Legacy of Carlisle Indian
           Industrial School
    • Abstract: "Flesh can house no memory of bone. Only bone speaks memory of flesh.""We talk about historical trauma… A hundred and thirty years later, this still has an impact on our youth. We're trying to make peace with those spirits and bring them home."In N. Scott Momaday's The Moon in Two Windows, Luther Standing Bear, the first graduate of Carlisle Indian Industrial School, returns years later to catch a football game between Carlisle and the Army team. Moon closes as Luther and his son walk through the graves of Carlisle's cemetery, a resonant site for those who refuse to forget the genocidal legacy of the boarding school system launched at Carlisle, Pennsylvania. The young boy points to distant figures of a man and a ... Read More

  • The Necessity of Lived Resistance: Reading Leslie Marmon Silko's Gardens
           in the Dunes in an Era of Rapid Climate Change
    • Abstract: In its complex readings of a range of fictional gardens, gardeners, and gardening practices, Leslie Marmon Silko's 1999 novel Gardens in the Dunes1 engages with and foregrounds Indigenous relationships with the Earth as powerful alternatives to the unsustainable and damaging ways that many Euro-American and European societies live today. Set at the close of the nineteenth century, Gardens focuses primarily on a single, all-female Indigenous Sand Lizard family, the only group still using the traditional dune gardens. Told from the perspective of the young Sand Lizard child Indigo, the story follows Indigo and her older sibling, Sister Salt, once they are captured by Indian agents after their mother goes missing at a ...

  • Getting on with Things: Ontology and the Material in Louise Erdrich's The
           Painted Drum
    • Abstract: Faye Travers, the initial narrator of Louise Erdrich's novel The Painted Drum (2005), has a thing for things. Her work as an estate appraiser gives her a professional interest in material objects, but her inclination is also personal: she is drawn to "the stuff of life" because she seeks in it a refuge from the pain of living.1 The novel's first section, which opens in a New Hampshire children's cemetery, catalogs a series of losses, each a degree closer to Faye. A car accident kills Kendra, the daughter of Faye's lover Kurt Krahe, along with Kendra's boyfriend and a local man, John Jewett Tatro. Faye recalls the long-ago deaths of her father and younger sister, Netta. Living people offer Faye little comfort; her ... Read More

  • Traditional Ecological Knowledge: Learning from Indigenous Practices for
           Environmental Sustainability ed. by Melissa K. Nelson and Dan Shilling
    • Abstract: As its title suggests, this book explores Indigenous peoples' Traditional Ecological Knowledge (TEK) and its relevance to conceptions of environmental sustainability. The fourteen essays collected here, the majority of them by Indigenous scholars, focus on North America and cover a range of disciplines and methodologies. The essential philosophical assumptions bound up with TEK, some of its ongoing practical applications, and its profound significance for both Indigenous and non-Indigenous peoples, are incisively and compellingly set forth in these chapters. A particularly attractive element of this collection, moreover, is the way it offers distillations by a number of scholars of their own larger bodies of work ... Read More

  • When It Rains: Papago and Pima Poetry/mak hekid o ju, o'odham,
           ha-cegĭtodag ed. by Ofelia Zepeda (review)
    • Abstract: At a time when it seemed as if anthologies were being issued rather over-excessively—c. 1970–early 1980s—When It Rains made its entrance in such a unique way so as to create a whole new—and much needed—category and format: the bilingual presentation of work honoring individual tribal areas, rather than those works in English only. At the time, most anthologies were the big New York press offerings of generally the same poets and very few prose writers, and the same reprinting of their work. (I am somewhat guilty of this myself when considering my anthology, The Remembered Earth, where I reprinted some of the then contemporary Native poets, but hopefully, it will be remembered that in my book there is much new work ...

  • Chiapas Maya Awakening: Contemporary Poems and Short Stories ed. by Sean
           S. Sell and Nicolás Huet Bautista (review)
    • Abstract: Chiapas Maya Awakening: Contemporary Poems and Short Stories (2017) edited by Sean S. Sell and Nicolás Huet Bautista is a rare collection presenting remarkable examples of contemporary Maya writing that contest the perception of the Maya as silenced and submissive peoples.This unique multilingual edition gives readers the opportunity to read the works in the Mayan languages of Tsotsil and Tseltal as well as in Spanish and English. The choice to publish the original version alongside their translations (and have them always come first) is a significant acknowledgment of the importance of the thriving Mayan languages that have survived countless efforts of the colonial authorities to eradicate them and to silence ...

  • You are enough: love poems for the end of the world by Smokii Sumac
    • Abstract: Kegedonce Press, the venerable and brilliant Indigenous publishers behind Smokii Sumac's debut collection, sent me an electronic reading copy of you are enough. Normally, this wouldn't be something to comment on in a book review, but in this case reading the poems on screen felt oddly appropriate. Like his near-contemporary, Joshua Whitehead, Sumac is a member of a distinct new wave of Canadian First Nations writing that is characterized by a "digitally native" sensibility, and many of these poems seem shaped by an online environment—not least in the way that they are curated into six thematic sections, respectively titled "#nogoseries," "#courting," "#theworld," "#recovery," "#ceremony," and "#forandafter." As you ... Read More

  • Hearts Unbroken by Cynthia Leitich Smith (review)
    • Abstract: After a decade publishing gothic fantasy bestsellers, Cynthia Leitich Smith (Muscogee) returned to realism with her 2018 young adult title Hearts Unbroken. This book is not just realist; it is the most vivid, timely, gut-wrenchingly realistic YA novel I have read.Hearts Unbroken opens with Muscogee protagonist Louise (Lou) Wolfe deciding, during a post-junior prom brunch, that she has "had enough" of her "WASPy" boyfriend Cam's "ego and attitude" (10). SAIL readers will readily see why. In this brief first chapter, while discussing his mom's disapproval of his brother's Kickapoo fiancé, Cam jokes that "Kickapoo sounds like a dog," untenably claims to be "part Cherokee," laments that "Girls are so sensitive," lashes ...
