This collection of essays advocates a multidisciplinary dialogue that brings together an international group of scholars who work in the field of Latin American, Anglo-American, and Francophone Native Studies. To foster a more comprehensive and diverse curriculum of Native American Studies, this volume combines contributions from literary programs (English, Spanish, Comparative Literature) as well as from related fields in the humanities such as anthropology, history, and law. The goal of this collection of essays is to contribute to the development of Native American Studies from an inter-American perspective and to examine a set of methodological, formal, and thematic categories within which the indigenous literatures and cultures of the Americas from the pre-Columbian period to the present can be discussed.
