Editorial Reviews


"Regardless of one's ethnicity, affiliation or experience, museum professionals and public historians alike, especially those with little or no experience working with indigenous communities or other stakeholder audiences, will find this volume concerning an emerging aspect of museum practice valuable and worth exploring."—Kym S. Rice, Western American Literature
(Kym S. Rice Western American Literature)

"Contesting Knowledge will likely remain relevant for many years as the issues the authors present are ongoing and applicable to any tribal-centered exhibition or public museum collaboration."—Charles D. Chamberlain III, Ethnohistory
(Charles D. Chamberlain III Ethnohistory)

"These essays demonstrate that Native peoples across North America and Africa are using museums to rectify a legacy of conquest. As such, scholars and educators in the fields of anthropology, American Indian studies, and museum studies will find this collection of essays especially useful."—Jennifer Fish Kashay, Western Historical Quarterly
(Jennifer Fish Kashay Western Historical Quarterly)

"This collection is an important part of the conversations taking place in Indigenous studies and beyond."—Elizabeth Archuleta, Studies in American Indian Literatures
(Elizabeth Archuleta Studies in American Indian Literatures)

"This book is valuable because it contains both external and internal synopses of cultural convictions, public history motivations, and organizational conventions which operate to situate an object in its "best position.""—Alphine W. Jefferson, Public Historian
(Alphine W. Jefferson Public Historian)
