Product Description


"The Social Life of Stories establishes a powerful argument about the legitimacy and viability of the distinctive intellectual traditions of modern Native peoples. One of the strengths of this book is that Cruikshank extends her thesis to carve out a position that challenges the dominance of non-Native intellectual systems."--American Indian Quarterly " ... a powerful argument about the legitimacy and viability of First Nations intellectual traditions. The book is theoretically sophisticated and can indeed be considered as a major challenge to the dominance of non-Native intellectual systems... a must for all those engaged in ethnohistoric and ethnographic work."--Anthropos 97.2002/2
