  • Narrating Native Histories

  • Overview

    Narrating Native Histories is designed to foster a rethinking of the ethical, methodological, and conceptual paradigms that shape work on Native histories and cultures. The editors seek to create a space for effective and ongoing conversations between North and South, Natives and non-Natives, and academics and activists throughout the Americas and the Pacific region. Toward that end, they encourage projects that recognize Native intellectuals, cultural interpreters, and alternative knowledge producers within broader academic and intellectual worlds; projects that decolonize the relationship between orality and textuality; narratives that productively work the tensions between the norms of Native cultures and evidentiary requirements in academic circles; and analyses that contribute to an understanding of Native peoples' relationships with nation-states.
