9780806133522: Other Words: American Indian Literature, Law, and Culture (American Indian Literature and Critical Studies Series)

Eloh’, a Cherokee word, is usually translated by anthropologists as "religion," but it also simultaneously encompasses history, culture, knowledge, law, and land. In this provocative work, Jace Weaver interlaces these seemingly disparate meanings to form a coherent approach to Native American Studies.

In nineteen interrelated chapters, Weaver presents a range of experiences shared by native peoples in the Americas, from the distant past to the uncertain future. He examines Indian creative output, from oral tradition to the postmodern wordplay of Gerald Vizenor, and brings to light previously overlooked texts. Weaver also tackles up-to-the-minute issues, including environmental crises, Native American spirituality, repatriation of Indian remains and cultural artifacts, and international human rights.

About the Author:

Jace Weaver is Franklin Professor of Native American Studies and Religion at the University of Georgia. He is the author of The Red Atlantic: American Indigenes and the Making of the Modern World, 1000–1927.

From Library Journal:

Weaver (American studies, religious studies, and law, Yale Univ.) has written an intriguing volume that attempts to bridge three subfields of Native American studies: literature, law, and culture. She succeeds admirably in this collection of thoughtful, informative pieces. In the first chapter, "In Other's Words," Weaver addresses a number of provocative questions, such as "What does it mean to be Native American?," "Is American Indian identity measured by blood, genealogy, or culture?," and "Is Native American art simply any art produced by a Native American?" Another especially fascinating chapter is "Indian Presence with No Indians Present," which details laws and cases regarding the preservation (or lack thereof) of Native American remains. Some previously published pieces have been rewritten and updated for this collection. An excellent choice for academic libraries supporting Native American studies classes.
