And, contrary to what was posted in another review, I think it is accessible. It would certainly help to have some familiarity with the works that are cited in this book- but compared to a lot of things out there, it's a fairly straightforward read.
Some chapters need a few readings to grasp all of the messages present, but it is not hardcore or only for graduates! Rather, I think, this work is sharing so much that goes against what the colonized mind has accepted as "normal" or "right", that it takes you awhile to achieve that epiphany and awareness of your own colonized thinking. I recommend it to everyone.
But be warned that this is noooooo easy read. Unless you can understand complex writers like Judith Butler, Eve Sedgwick, or Homi Bhabha, you may be scared away here. This is a book for academics' academics. For example, Dr. B.J. Gilley's book on Two Spirit men is much more user-friendly than his chapter in this text. (It's interesting to see too that he came out as a heterosexual Native in this chapter, rather than just coming out as hetero.) Sometimes the chapters here seem overly critical too.
I can't say it enough: this is hardcore! It is for graduate students, not everyday folk.
