Native America in this book is as it should be: both diverse and uniform, individual and collective. . . . Don't look to this book for neat answers; instead you'll find the complexity and diversity that is most representative of Native nations today, yesterday, and in days to come.--American Literary History
[An] excellent new edited document collection. . . . [featuring] an impressive number of unfamiliar and unpublished sources. . . . [that] demonstrates Native American intellectuals' and activists' long tradition of engaging the surrounding majority society and wider world on Indigenous terms, for Indigenous purposes, and not at the expense of Indigeneity. . . . [It] should generate lively discussions among students. . . . [and] will be of great value for professional scholarship on Indian intellectual history, activism, sovereignty, self-determination, economic development, postcolonial resistance, and, of course, politics.--Ethnohistory
A powerful contribution to making visible previously invisible individuals and communities, as well as tribal and multitribal political activities.--American Indian Quarterly
An impressive collection. . . . [that features] resurgent and revitalized indigenous voices.--Journal of American History
