Native Studies is the setting right of names, the righting of names as much as the writing of names. In any study that deserves to be called Native Studies, there will be no un-named, so-called Native informants. There will be no un-named elders. The words of elders and other sources of information are attributed, so that the names if these knowledgeable people can take their place besides the names if the non-Native authorities so carefully cited in scholarly practice. Place names will also be righted, so that the inscriptions on the land developed over centuries by First Nations may once again be read, the stories once again told. The names of the First Nations themselves — Inuit instead of Eskimo, Gwi’chin instead of Loucheaux, Innu instead of Montagnais — will be returned by them, to them."
Peter Kulchyski, “What Is Native Studies?”
Besides the fact that you can outwrite every motherfucker on the planet sentence by sentence, and you’re one of us. Besides that little fact, that little fact that always puts me to bed comfortable. No matter what the hell’s going on in the world, I always lay in bed, and I’m like, ‘The best writer in the world is of African descent. Peace!’"
