Edited by Ernest Stromberg (associate professor in the Department of English, Communication and Journalism at California State University), American Indian Rhetorics Survivance: Word Medicine, Word Magic is an anthology of scholarly essays by learned authors discussing the rhetorical techniques and strategies of Native Americans in general terms. From ways in which Native Americans revised and transformed Western rhetorical concepts, to critical study of groundbreaking discourse between Native Americans and European colonists, to linguistic issues affecting Native American oratory, American Indian Rhetorics of Survivance explores the nuances of multicultural speechmaking in depth. Specific communication discussed include Red Jacket's rhetoric, Leonard Peltier's prison writings, the cultural translation of the Battle of the Little Bighorn and Custer's death, and much more. A welcome addition to college library and Native American studies shelves.
