Wiindigoo Sovereignty and Native Transmotion in Gerald Vizenor's Bearheart
Department or Administrative Unit
In the study of American Indian literatures, the rise of criticism focused on literary nationalism, with its emphasis on tribal-specific approaches to literary study, the sovereignty of Native nations, and claims to tribal homelands, would seem to herald the displacement of Gerald Vizenor’s work from a central position in the American Indian literary canon. Indeed, Vizenor has been criticized for failing to address or for actively subverting in his creative work and criticism these issues of primary concern to literary nationalists.
