Indigenous Informants and American Anthropologists
In this provocative new book, Margaret M. Bruchac, an Indigenous anthropologist, turns the word savage on its head. Savage Kin explores the nature of the relationships between Indigenous informants such as Gladys Tantaquidgeon (Mohegan), Jesse Cornplanter (Seneca), and George Hunt (Tlingit), and early twentieth-century anthropological collectors such as Frank Speck, Arthur C. Parker, William N. Fenton, and Franz Boas.
Haudenosaunee Reclamation at Grand River
In February 2006, the Six Nations community of Caledonia, Ontario, occupied a 132-acre construction site, reigniting a 200-year struggle to reclaim land and rights in the Grand River region. Framed by intersecting themes of knowledge production, political resurgence, and the contributions of Haudenosaunee women, In Divided Unity provides a model for critical Indigenous theory that remains grounded in community-based concerns and actions.
