Abstract

Attributed to Pocahontas, the Native American princess who helped establish peace between the colonists and the Indians, the phrase that is the provocative title of the collection is immediately telling, since it is allied to a common thread in Paula Gunn Allen’s work of reconciling and mediating between diverse American subcultures.

Keywords: Paula Gunn Allen
