"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
