Abstract

Mohegan basket and David Murray's study of Oanhekoe's signature, as I find these open the doors to valuable new paradigms of interpretation and innovative research that enhance and strengthen American Indian communities' control of their own histories, sovereignty, and self-determination. Therefore, I highly recommend this anthology to a wide body of readers. Even the price makes it an attractive choice for an instructor. The chapters provide a variety of perspectives and interpretations of primary American Indian colonial texts that are well grounded and designed to introduce these texts to a wide range of readers, from introductory university classes to anyone who is interested in colonial America or American Indian histories. The chapters are intended to provoke further analysis and discussions while providing insight into colonial cross-cultural encounters and the historic politics of American Indian identity negotiation, a process that continues to this day.
