Developing a multi-leveled historical inquiry of the Native Tolowa of the US, James Collins explores the linguistic and political dynamics of place-claiming and expropriation as well as the relation between otherness and subjugation.


"An academic but nonetheless personally informed exploration of the assumptions behind the way history is recorded and recounted, examined in the context of history in general and the history of the Tolowa people specifically." -- News from Native California
