Written by one of the first scholars and commentator's on popular culture to take an in-depth look at recent Native American art, literature, and film, //Engaged Resistance// is a big, brilliant book, full of color film clips, photographs, and art reproductions, as well as excerpts from novels, poetry, and films that both participate in the dominant American culture, and at the same time push against the assimilation and erasure of Indian culture. It's a book packed with descriptions and analyses of figures like filmmaker Sherman Alexie, best-selling novelist Louise Erdrich and many other lesser known figures, like LeAnne Howe, Edgar Heap of Birds, Jaune Quick-To-See Smith, and Chris Eyre. An English professor at the University of San Francisco and a native Oklahoman, Rader explores the ways natives assert their own sovereignty on cultural issues, skirting the historical and legal options that have in large part failed to preserve their culture or give them a voice. With a chapter devoted to the impressive new National Museum of the American Indian in Washington, D.C.,//Engaged Resistance//moves across genres, using what Rader calls the "compositional resistance" of mixed genres and blurred boundaries to demonstrate yet another way of resisting erasure and assimilation.
