Abstract

The careless, perhaps even cynical manipulation of foundational words and past deeds in these three contemporary opinions contrasts starkly with the power of words and the great weight of the past articulated in Native American cultures. That tradition emphasizes "the rich complexity of meanings" in traditional American Indian narratives. Karl Kroeber and other authors in his compilation convincingly make the case that "lilt is our scholarship, not Indian literature, which is 'primitive' or undeveloped."
