Resettling “The Indian Today” within and beyond the U.S. 1960s

(p.3) 1 “Being” Indigenous “Now”

This chapter presents the process of recovery/interpretation by situating the 1965 special issue of the Midcontinent American Studies Journal (MASJ), within multiple configurations of relevant companion texts. It organizes its multiple sets of juxtapositions first synchronically and globally (related texts from similar times but different places) and then nationally and diachronically (related texts from similar places but different times) in order to demonstrate the degree to which distinct contexts and analytical situations affect literary reading, analysis, and interpretation. The juxtapositions help defamiliarize and refocus the all-too-familiar story of non-Indigenous researchers, scholars, writers, and editors dominating the production of authoritative nonfiction discourses about the contemporary status and aspirations of American Indians, whether in the mid-1960s or across the country.

Keywords:   recovery, interpretation, juxtapositions, literary reading, non-Indigenous, American Indians
