This volume unites twenty-three articles by high-caliber Native and non-Native, North American and European scholars on a variety of topics relating to North America and tribal, local, and global aspects – land and homeland, education, environmental ethics and politics, storywork and literature, and film. The book seeks to address the changes in Native and Minority Studies and engage in critical self-reflection. It also investigates the interfaces between local, tribal, and global. How do global developments affect the local and the tribal? What ways of resistance are open and how can global developments be turned to their advantage? Likewise, how are these developments contextualized in texts and films?

"The volume as a whole is an impressive and well-deserved tribute to a scholar whose passionate involvement with and support of aboriginal peoples certainly inspired many students to empathetically share their perspectives."
