The scale and breadth of this collection make it a landmark in the development of indigenous studies. The volume bursts with ideas and insights that challenge disciplinary and cultural preconceptions, while opening an array of new pathways for research and debate. Together, these authors teach us the immense potential and complex meanings embedded in the term "Indigeneity" and call us to think anew about the people it describes. -Frederick E. Hoxie, author of This Indian Country: American Indian Political Activists and the Place They Made A wide-ranging selection and impressive reflection of the kind of work that has transformed Indigenous Studies in recent years-by many of the scholars who have brought about that transformation. -Colin G. Calloway, author of Pen and Ink Witchcraft: Treaties and Treaty Making in American Indian History Readers will value this volume for its authoritative voices, the breadth of its geographic sweep, but especially for conveying what editor Robert Warrior calls "an indigenous presence and persistence." -Paul V. Kroskrity, Chair, American Indian Studies, University of California, Los Angeles We are in the midst of revolutionary development for Native American and Indigenous studies. Skillfully guided by Robert Warrior and featuring a range of important voices, The World of Indigenous North America will help lead the way in this exciting and productive efflorescence across disciplines. -Chadwick Allen, 2013-14 President of the Native American and Indigenous Studies Association Capacious in scope, steeped in analytical rigor, and carefully woven together with an expert editorial hand, this collection of wide-ranging essays brings together some of the most exciting scholarship in the field of Indigenous Studies. At once accessible and challenging, this volume is a must read for scholars, students, and lay readers alike. -Daniel M. Cobb, author of Native Activism in Cold War America: The Struggle for Soverignty Warrior, a highly respected Native scholar and writer, has gathered a "broadly imagined portrait" of Indigenous studies. This collected volume outlines some of the most important intellectual and material concerns driving current scholarship and emerging from tribal communities...Summing Up: Essential. All levels/libraries. -N. B. Barnd, Oregon State University, CHOICE Review
