9780816530922: Diné Perspectives: Revitalizing and Reclaiming Navajo Thought (Critical Issues in Indigenous Studies)

What does it mean to be a Navajo (Diné) person today? What does it mean to “respect tradition”? How can a contemporary life be informed by the traditions of the past? These are the kinds of questions addressed by contributors to this unusual and pathbreaking book.
 
All of the contributors are coming to personal terms with a phrase that underpins the matrix of Diné culture: Sa’ah Naagháí Bik’eh Hózhóón. Often referred to simply as SNBH, the phrase can be translated in many ways but is generally understood to mean “one’s journey of striving to live a long, harmonious life.” The book offers a variety of perspectives of Diné men and women on the Diné cultural paradigm that is embedded in SNBH. Their writings represent embodied knowledge grounded in a way of knowing that connects thought, speech, experience, history, tradition, and land. Some of the contributors are scholars. Some are Diné who are fighting for justice and prosperity for the Navajo Nation. Some are poets and artists. They are united in working to preserve both intellectual and cultural sovereignty for Diné peoples. And their contributions exemplify how Indigenous peoples are creatively applying tools of decolonization and critical research to re-create Indigenous thought and culture in a present day that rarely resembles the days of their ancestors.
 
More than 300,000 people self-identify as Diné today. Every one must grapple with how to make a life that acknowledges Sa’ah Naagháí Bik’eh Hózhóón. Diné Perspectives is unique in bringing such personal journeys to the public eye.

About the Author:

Lloyd L. Lee is an assistant professor in the Native American Studies Department at the University of New Mexico. He is also the book review editor for the journal American Indian Quarterly. Lee is Diné of the Towering House and Red Bottom clans. His maternal grandfather clan is Salt and his paternal grandfather clan is Water’s Edge.

Review:

“There are certainly not enough books that address multidimensional decolonization, particularly from tribally-specific perspectives. I can’t think of another collection like this.”—Qwo-Li Driskill, co-editor of Queer Indigenous Studies: Critical Interventions in Theory, Politics, and Literature

“A number of essays in this collection are very personal and powerful testaments to survivance and demonstrate the centrality of SNBH/Hózhó in serving to assist Diné in decolonizing and indigenizing Diné education, language revitalization, tribal enrollment policies, and governance.”—Kathy M’Closkey, author of Why the Navajo Blanket Became a Rug: Excavating the Lost Heritage of Globalization
