Kelly S. McDonough gives sustained attention to the complex nature of Nahua intellectualism and writing from the colonial period through the present day. The Learned Ones describes the experience of reading historic text with native speakers today, some encountering Nahua intellectuals and their writing for the very first time. It intertwines the written word with oral traditions and embodied knowledge, aiming to retie the strand of alphabetic writing to the dynamic trajectory of Nahua intellectual work. This collaborative ethnography shows the heterogeneity of Nahua knowledge and writing, as well as indigenous experiences in Mexico.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"This work is a treasure and inspiration for anyone interested in Indigenous histories or languages.--NAIS

"McDonough's work exposes its readers to myriad disciplines and time periods to reveal in a very real way the life and tenacity of Nahuatl and its speakers, and the important role they played and continue to play as intellectuals."--The Americas

"This study is important, a must-read, for anyone working in indigenous literatures of Mexico. It serves as a contribution to the overall Mexican narrative of nation, showing indigenous intellectuals as agents on behalf of themselves and their communities. In a broader context, it is a significant work for native/indigenous studies hemispherically and globally."--Ines Hernandez-Avila, author of Reading Native Women: Critical/Creative Representations
