9780393040296: Reinventing the Enemy's Language: Contemporary Native Women's Writing of North America

From people who value stories and songs from literary traditions that are as encompassing and intricate as those of Europe, Reinventing the Enemy's Language is the most comprehensive anthology of its kind to collect the poetry, fiction, prayer and memoir from Native American women. It is about the process of writing and speaking that sheds light on what it means to be an Indian woman at the end of the century, as many nations - including the United States and Canada - are involved in the emotionally charged question of identity and place. Over eighty writers are represented from nearly fifty nations.
