Comparative indigenous studies: K. Tsianina Lomawaima, ‘Indigenous Studies’, American Quarterly, 68, 1, 2016, pp. 149-160
Excerpt: Searching for relationships across recent scholarship in Indigenous studies is productive and intellectually satisfying. The limited slice of this review includes scholars writing from and about the United States, Canada, and Aotearoa / New Zealand. The varied stitches of their interdisciplinary, geographic, cultural, familial, and personal vantage points bite like feather quills, basketry splints, and fishing lines into a fabric of shared Indigenous experiences that are rooted in places, landscapes, seas, and movements of ancient time-depth; that have been and are being substantially shaped by the ongoing structures of settler colonialism; and that express unfolding contemporary dynamism.
