More About the Author

Daniel Heath Justice (b. 1975) is Colorado-born Canadian citizen of the Cherokee Nation, raised the third generation of his mother's family in the mining town of Victor, Colorado. After a decade living and teaching in the Anishinaabe, Huron-Wendat, and Haudenosaunee territories of southern Ontario, where he worked at the University of Toronto, he now lives with his husband in the traditional, ancestral, and unceded territories of the Musqueam people, where he is Associate Professor of First Nations Studies and English at the University of British Columbia. He is currently Canada Research Chair in Indigenous Literature and Expressive Culture at UBC, and also serves as Chair of the First Nations Studies Program. Daniel's research focuses on Indigenous literary expression, with particular emphasis on issues of literary nationalism, kinship, sexuality, and intellectual production. His scholarship and creative work also extend into speculative fiction, animal studies, and cultural history.

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

1 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Midwest Book Review on August 17, 2006
Format: Paperback
OUR FIRE SURVIVES THE STORM: A CHEROKEE LITERARY HISTORY uses the Chickamauga consciousness of resistance and Beloved Path of engagement to provide a different method of interpreting texts composed in English, revealing different nuances of Cherokee literary tradition in the process. With Daniel Health Justice's approach in hand, college-level students of Native American literature have a fine method of analyzing stories for strengths, purpose, and direction.
