The arrival of European settlers in the Americas disrupted indigenous lifeways, and the effects of colonialism shattered Native communities. Forced migration and human trafficking created a diaspora of cultures, languages, and people. Gregory D. Smithers and Brooke N. Newman have gathered the work of leading scholars, including Bill Anthes, Duane Champagne, Daniel Cobb, Donald Fixico, and Joy Porter, among others, in examining an expansive range of Native peoples and the extent of their influences through reaggregation. These diverse and wide-ranging essays uncover indigenous understandings of self-identification, community, and culture through the speeches, cultural products, intimate relations, and political and legal practices of Native peoples.
Native Diasporas explores how indigenous peoples forged a sense of identity and community amid the changes wrought by European colonialism in the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands, and the mainland Americas from the seventeenth through the twentieth century. Broad in scope and groundbreaking in the topics it explores, this volume presents fresh insights from scholars devoted to understanding Native American identity in meaningful and methodologically innovative ways.

"The essays in Native Diasporas offer fascinating case studies that simultaneously value local nuance and transnational/global contexualization across more than three centuries of history. They also offer fresh insights in the study of indigenous identities."-Joseph Genetin-Pilawa, Western Historical Quarterly -- Joseph Genetin-Pilawa * Western Historical Quarterly *
"This work will become a seminal text for people studying in the field."-Paul Moon, Te Kaharoa -- Paul Moon * Te Kaharoa *
"This text is not only a timely addition to the Native American/American Indian studies discourse, but it also introduces a fresh way of discussing indigeneity and the complicated experience of those communities impacted by settler colonialism."-Clementine Bordeaux, American Indian Culture and Research Journal -- Clementine Bordeaux * American Indian Culture and Research Journal *

"The essays in Native Diasporas address a tremendously important and complicated subject-Indigenous identity."-Barbara Krauthamer, author of Black Slaves, Indian Masters: Slavery, Emancipation, and Citizenship in the Native American South

-- Barbara Krauthamer

"In a powerful and timely way, Native Diasporas moves away from the `frontier' as finite and from the `middle ground' as an endpoint. Its essays pay attention to women's agency, gender issues, economic and political dynamics, the history of changing policies, and to Indigenous responses and engagements with settler colonialism."-Ann McGrath, director of the Australian Centre for Indigenous History at Australian National University and coauthor of How to Write History that People Want to Read

-- Ann McGrath
