Description

When Did Indians Become Straight? Kinship, the History of Sexuality, and Native Sovereignty by Mark Rifkin Assistant Professor of English at the University of North Carolina explores the complex relationship between contested U.S. notions of normality and shifting forms of Native American governance and self-representation. Examining a wide range of texts including Narrative of the Life of Mrs. Mary Jemison, Last of the Mohicans, American Indian Stories, Mohawk Trail, and Drowning in Fire the author offers a cultural and literary history of the ways Indigenous peoples have been inserted into Euro-American discourses of sexuality and how Indigenous intellectuals have sought to reaffirm their peoples' sovereignty and self-determination.
