Decolonizing American Indian Studies September 19-20, 2003
These keynote speeches all address a current theme in American Indian Studies, namely the examination of ways in which dominant modes of research inquiry tend to privilege western, European, ways of thinking and effectively silence other ways of knowing and being. These scholars, all nationally recognized figures in American Indian studies, offer their perspectives on research methods, their implications for indigenous communities, and ways in which native peoples are contesting research paradigms and constructing modes of inquiry that represent native ways of knowing.
