Editorial Reviews


A vivid picture of the complexities, contradictions, and challenges inherent both in early Native literacies and in the scholarly reconstruction of these textual encounters.

(New England Quarterly)

It will appeal to a wide audience, including those interested in Native American studies, anthropology, religious studies, American colonial history, and the study of complex iconography..... This is a well-written and informative addition to a wide range of interests.... I highly recommend this anthology to a wide body of readers. Even the price makes it an attractive choice for an instructor. The chapters provide a variety of perspectives and interpretations of primary American Indian colonial texts that are well grounded and designed to introduce these texts to a wide range of readers, from introductory university classes to anyone who is interested in colonial America or American Indian histories.

(American Indian Quarterly)

The book presents a series of Native textual objects edited according to scholarly conventions with interpretive essays that explains the artifacts' production and subsequent archival history. Together, the essays in these collections represent some of the best work being done in this field.
