narrating native histories aims to foster
a rethinking of the ethical, methodological, and
conceptual frameworks within which we locate our work
on Native histories and cultures. We seek to create a space
for effective and ongoing conversations between North
and South, Natives and non-Natives, and academics and
activists throughout the Americas and the Pacific region.
We are committed to complicating and transgressing the
disciplinary and epistemological boundaries of established
academic discourses on Native peoples.
This series encourages symmetrical, horizontal, collabo-
rative, and autoethnographies; work that recognizes Native
intellectuals, cultural interpreters, and alternative knowl-
edge producers within broader academic and intellectual
worlds; projects that decolonize the relationship between
orality and textuality; narratives that productively work the
tensions between the norms of Native cultures and the re-
quirements for evidence in academic circles; and analyses
that contribute to an understanding of Native peoples’ re-
lationships with nation-states, including histories of expro-
priation and exclusion as well as projects for autonomy and
sovereignty.
