American Indians and the Urban Experience (01 Edition)by Susan Lobo
Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Modern American Indian life is urban, rural, and everything in-between. Lobo and Peters have compiled an unprecedented collection of innovative scholarship, poetry, prose, and stunning art--from photography and graffiti to rap and songs--that documents American Indian experiences of urban life. A pervasive rural/urban dichotomy still shapes the popular and scholarly perceptions of Native Americans, but this is a false expression of a complex and constantly changing reality. When viewed from the Native perspectives, our concepts of urbanity and approaches to American Indian studies are necessarily transformed. Courses in Native American studies, ethnic studies, anthropology, and urban studies must be in step with contemporary Indian realities. This powerful combination of pathbreaking scholarship and visual and literary arts will be enjoyed by students, scholars, and a general audience.
Book News Annotation:
This collection of scholarly essays, prose, poetry, rap lyrics, graffiti, and visual arts documents a variety of American Indian experiences of urban life. The text is divided into three sections: an overview of urbanism, the structuring and dynamics of urban communities, and individuals and families in urban contexts. A sampling of topics includes Yaqui cultural and linguistic evolution; retribalization in urban Indian communities; urban Indian comedy; Laguna Pueblo railroaders in Richmond, California; and addiction and recovery in Milwaukee.
