Abstract

214 Western American Literature Summer 2010 collection through a new scrutiny of Heye, the individual who collected them earlier in the twentieth century. Other essays analyze the role of tribal museums in revitalizing their communities, particularly through community-focused exhibition practices. Amy Lonetree's thoughtful "Museums as Sites of Decolonization: Truth Telling in National and Tribal Museums" concludes the volume. Lonetree has in the past criticized NMAI's lack of historical context, particularly with respect to colonization and genocide, while generally offering praise for the museum's efforts to effect close collaboration with Native communities. Here she evaluates the Saginaw Chippewa's Ziibiwing Center of Anishinabe Culture and Lifeways as an exemplar of what Lonetree terms the "decolonized" museum--standing in sharp contrast to NMAI. Her study calls our attention to the powerful, creative, and quite different new models for exhibition making now emerging from some indigenous museums. 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.
