Implementing many of the most cutting-edge trends in contemporary indigenous studies, these seventeen original essays tackle indigenous identity, cultural perseverance, economic development, and urbanization in a wide array of American Indian and First Nations populations. The authors present and preserve indigenous voices and carefully consider native world views throughout the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries, and also address mainstream policies that influenced Native people in various eras and locales. The essays range from the specific single peoples living in well-defined spaces during discrete time periods, to the expansive broad comparative and international discussions. Yet the volumes diversity extends beyond its topical breadth. The contributors themselves - many of whom are Native Americans or members of other First Nation - speer through scholarly lenses polished in Canada, Denmark, Finland, England, Sweden, and the United States. The ensuing synthesis helps to clarify the modern complexities of analyzing indigenous pasts.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Since the 1960s, writing on First Nations and Native American history has expanded worldwide, and also beyond history, bringing in elements of anthropology, media studies, sociology, and area and cultural studies.... Native scholars have not only enriched the field by their own insights but also probably compelled non-natives to include new dimensions to their approaches. -- Markku Henricksson
The ideas introduced within stand as a provocative challenge to contemporary understandings of First Nations and Native American people." -- Margaret Connell-Szasz "University of New Mexico"
"Reconfigurations of Native North America is blazing a new path and expanding the ways in which we consider Indigenous issues in the 20th century." -- Akim D. Reinhardt "Towson University"
