(p.144) Chapter 5 Indigenous Assemblage and Queer Diasporas in the Work of Janice Gould
The Queerness of Native American Literature

University of Minnesota Press

This chapter studies Koyoonk’auwi Maidu writer Janice Gould’s three poetry collections—Beneath My Heart, Earthquake Weather, and Doubters and Dreamers—to consider how Gould’s writing moves toward a queer Indigenous methodology called “Indigenous assemblage.” It demonstrates that Gould both claims and disavows genealogies of racial descent, filiation, and biological traceablity. Gould locates identity in affective affiliation to Koyoonk’auwi territory while still recognizing the inadequacies of herself and her mother’s relationship to Koyoonk’auwi cultural knowledge.

Keywords:   Janice Gould, Beneath My Heart, Earthquake Weather, Doubters and Dreamers, Indigenous assemblage, Koyoonk’auwi territory, Koyoonk’auwi cultural knowledge, Koyoonk’auwi Maidu
