"For anyone seriously engaged with the growing field of critical studies of indigenous literatures of the Americas, this book is indispensable. To know the palabra, the conciencia indígena, the creative autonomous forcé, diverse, complex, and profound, of indigenous peoples of the Americas, attention must be given to the literature of the south of Abya Yala. This book signals the profound process of visibilization that is happening in the contemporary intellectual, literary, social-political world(s) of indigenous peoples in "the South", and when considered along with similar manifestations in 'the North,' we find the entire hemisphere vibrating with the liberatory voices of indigenous peoples."--Inés Hernández Avila (Nez Perce/Tejana), University of California, Davis
