Just as Womack's Red on Red is a lynchpin in current understandings of
American Indian nationalism in literary studies, so Pulitano's 2003 Toward a
Native American Critical Theory is central to recent definitions of literary

– rather than the noun – 'Native' throughout this book. In addition, I have decided
to limit the number of terms used for the sake of clarity and generalization. See
Shari M. Huhndorf's Mapping the Americas: The Transnational Politics of
