During the colonial period in Guyana, the country's coastal lands were worked by enslaved Africans and indentured Indians. In Creole Indigeneity, Shona N. Jackson investigates how their descendants, collectively called Creoles, have remade themselves as Guyana's new natives, displacing indigenous peoples in the Caribbean through an extension of colonial attitudes and policies.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Shona Jackson's Creole Indigeneity breaks open a long-standing conundrum on the relationship between diasporan blacks and the modes of indigeneity with which they are both intersected with and/or located as oppositional to by dominant discourses in the West. Simply put, it is must-reading for all scholars of blackness and the African Diaspora because she does indeed 'illuminate those interwoven histories beneath the surface' that inform our broad and deeply complex ancestries."--Michelle M. Wright, Northwestern University


"The incorporation of a literary studies approach within historical and political subjectives and policy and legislation analysis provides an interesting methodological example for weaving different academic perspectives together, which may well encourage others to follow suit."--New West Indian Guide

"Contrasting the South American plantation coast of Guyana with the more indigenous interior, Jackson points the Caribbean's cultural and ideological displacement of the actual indigenous, to the tropical interiors of American space, to make room for the claims, both figural and literal, ideological and territorial, of the inhabitants of the 'Creole' coast'"--American Quarterly
