Description

Indigenous in the City: Contemporary Identities and Cultural Innovation is a compilation of 16 papers first presented at the 2009 workshop held in Saskatoon, Indigenous Urbanization Internationally. Organized around the urbanization of Indigenous peoples by country, the first section of 7 essays covers First Nations and Métis in Canada. The second section discusses urbanization issues in United States. The two final sections discuss urbanization of Indigenous peoples in Australia and New Zealand. The chapters in this volume explore the implications of urbanization on the production of distinctive Indigenous identities in Canada, the United States, New Zealand, and Australia. The volume editors, both lead researchers in their fields, have called upon key figures to explore the experiences of urban Indigenous modernity, utilizing an interdisciplinary mix of methods, including ethnography, statistical analysis, archival research, and discourse analysis. The contributors to this volume explore the implications of urbanization on the production of distinctive Indigenous identities. In doing so, they demonstrate the resilience, creativity, and complexity of the urban Indigenous presence, both in Canada and internationally. Of particular interest is the essay by Jay Johnson, Dancing into Place: The Role of the Powwow within Urban Indigenous Communities.
