The first word of Anishinaabemowin my father ever taught me
was “miigwech”—“thank you”—because it is the most important. I

This book has benefited immeasurably from the insightful comments
of a huge number of people, including those affectionately known to

Barlow, Nijah Cunningham, Emily Cersonsky, Jessica Teague, Lindsay Van

and accomplished scholars who have patiently listened to me talk about
this project for more than a decade. During my time at Yale, I was lucky
to workshop a section of this book with the Yale Group for the Study
of Native America—an remarkable group of students and faculty led
by the brilliant and tireless Ned Blackhawk. While at Florida Atlantic
University (FAU), I received incredible support and encouragement from
my colleagues Eric Berlatsky, Sika Dagbovie-Mullins, Taylor Hagood,
Warren Kelly, Elena Machado, Mark Scroggins, and most especially Adam
Bradford. Many students, both graduate and undergraduate, helped me
to refine the ideas in this work. Special thanks to the graduate students
in my “Transnational Native American Literature” seminar at FAU for
stimulating conversation and brilliant insight into the work of early
