AbstractHistoryArchive Description

This work analyses the role of place and its cultural significance in the fiction of eight contemporary Indigenous women writers from the United States, Canada, Australia, and New Zealand. It addresses how the places Indigenous people go to and imagine reveal the cultural directions toward which Indigenous people are moving and the changes that in their traditions. Further, it reveals how Indigenous people survive in a postcolonial world, heal, regain homes and rituals, and subsequently build new homes and create new traditions. (Source: Peter Lang website)
