(p.174) Conclusion Two-Spirit Futures
The Queerness of Native American Literature

Lisa Tatonetti

University of Minnesota Press

This concluding chapter answers the question of what can be gained by considering “the queerness” of Native American literature. Queering Indigenous literary history and engaging specifically queer Indigenous literary history forces the reconsideration of foundational moments in Native studies. The writers, artists, and scholars discussed in this book both build upon and extend pre-existing intellectual genealogies and geographies. These genealogies and geographies represent archives of more diverse social roles, indexes of creative kinship relations, and essential meaning-making practices through which to generate and organize knowledge. Examining Indigenous erotics not only strengthens approaches to queer and Indigenous studies but also forwards restorative decolonial practices.

Keywords:   Native American literature, queer Indigenous literature, Indigenous literary history, Native studies, Indigenous erotics
