In this long-awaited book from one of the most recognized and respected scholars in Native Studies today, Emma LaRocque presents a powerful interdisciplinary study of the Native literary response to racist writing produced in Canada between 1850 and 1990. In When the Other is Me, LaRocque brings a metacritical approach to Native writing, situating it as resistance literature within and outside the postcolonial context. She outlines the overwhelming evidence of dehumanization in Canadian historical and literary writing, its eff ects on both popular culture and Canadian intellectual development, and Native and non-Native responses to it in light of the interlayered mix of romanticism, exaggeration of Native diff erence, and the continuing problem of internalization that challenges our understanding of the colonizer/colonized relationship.
