Creole Indigeneity

This concluding chapter suggests a significant shift in Caribbean studies, stressing the need to go beyond Caliban and the metaphysics of modern labor. What is at stake in the ability to stop acting out Caliban’s role is both indigenous sovereignty and land rights, as well as a rejection of being in terms of capitalism and the continued requirement of master/slave modes of being that cannot account for Amerindian epistemologies. The various modes presented in the book ties the displacement of the narrative and political position of “prior arrival” to the solidification of black and other Creole modes of settler belonging in the New World. It also looks into studies done by others such as Elizabeth DeLoughrey and Kevin Bruyneel who present a “third space of sovereignty”, which is produced when the inherent sovereignty of Indigenous Peoples confronts the special and temporal ways of interpreting that sovereignty within the U.S. political system.

Keywords:   Caribbean studies, Caliban, indigenous sovereignty, Amerindian epistemologies, prior arrival, Elizabeth DeLoughre, Kevin Bruyneel, Indigenous Peoples, inherent sovereignty
