3.0 out of 5 stars I expect more from Deloria, December 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I really expect more from Deloria. After a very strong and provocative opening, the book quickly dives into a series of vignettes that make you say "that's interesting" but fail to push you to the same level of questioning one's framework. If this were his first book coming out of school this might be okay, but as an established academic, we should ask more of him. Good photos and good ideas but better suited to the undergraduate introductory class to Native Americans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and thoughtful, December 15, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Johnson's book is written in an easily accessible style that makes you forget that you are reading theory. It's more like reading a conversation. His ideas are thought-provoking, even for people who don't choose to agree with him. This book helped stimulate a lot of discussion in one of my graduate courses - likely the tone of the book does this. Rather than being confused about what was being said or what the theories were, it enabled all of us to have a discussion around the ideas and philosophy of the book. A stimulating and refreshing read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Indigenous interpretation of colonizer's writings, October 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I think the thing I like most about this book is that Blackhawk uses the colonizer's written words and interprets them through a native frame.

It has the tendency to feel one-sided, almost goes across the line of making indigenous people victims rather than empowering them through the exploration of violence.

All in all it is an interesting way to frame history of the Great Basin region and provides good information for those who don't know anything about the area.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, October 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
An absolute must-read for anyone working in indigenous schools or who wants to understand the politics of indigenous education.

Grande walks you through some history in indigenous education as she builds a new theory around how indigenous education scholars should imagine interpretative frames in the present and future. This books sends thoughts of a vision for vastly improving indigenous education.

4.0 out of 5 stars Comprehensive, though lacking some things, October 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Really nice history of California missions. Lacks indigenous voice or interpretations as the sources are entirely the mission written documentation. The only indigenous interpretive frame used is the origin story in the beginning. A well thought out book but lacks any challenge to the way historians conduct research and write history.

3.0 out of 5 stars A love letter to subcomadante marcos, October 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Okay, if you don't know anything about the Zapatista movement, this is an okay book to pick up and get some background. But, almost the only voice you hear and the praise you read is all about Subcomdante Marcos. Not much about women, not much about all the indigenous peoples who were part of making this movement happen.


The American Indian Oral History Manual: Making Many Voices Heard
The American Indian Oral History Manual: Making Many Voices Heard
by Barbara W. Sommer
Edition: Paperback
28 used & new from $16.10

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice little quick reference, October 29, 2010
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This book is a nice reference to checklist in your mind when you are getting ready to embark on an oral history project (or any sort of interview-based research). It doesn't cover all of the situations for indigenous peoples as it focuses on reservation indians (and there are of course urban indians, or multi-nation based projects). In the end it is a really good reference and a must have for your library.
