Revolutions before the Renaissance
The narratives of revolutionary indigenous Mexico by Todd Downing and Lynn Riggs are a selective but compelling part of the mid-twentieth-century American Indian writing. Recognizing that the imagined Mexico of this period is not essentially revolutionary but multidimensional politically is as important as acknowledging the same about the American Indian civil rights and early renaissance era. This chapter concludes that the literary and intellectual inquiries into American Indian and indigenous Mexican life in the mid-twentieth century affirms local, tribal national, transnational, and continental modes of indigenous belonging in the Americas, and asserts the urgency and desirability of indigenous self-determination in all these contexts.
