Reviews

"Combining postmodern and postcolonial cultural theories with the comic wisdom of the tribal trickster, Vizenor analyzes aspects of contemporary Native American culture. He eschews what he terms 'terminal creeds, ' that is, views of Native Americans that fix them in a certain cultural pose -- usually established by anthropologists and romanticizers -- and out of which they can never evolve without destroying their identity. . . .(Vizenor is) the foremost postmodern theorist of Native American literatures and cultures." -- San Francisco Chronicle
