New Interpretations of Native American Literature: A Survival Technique.
Buller, Galen
American Indian Culture and Research Journal, v4 n1-2 p165-77 1980
Uses examples from the work of several Native American authors, including N. Scott Momaday and Leslie Silko, to discuss five unique elements in American Indian literature: reverence for words, dependence on a sense of place, sense of ritual, affirmation of the need for community, and a significantly different world view.
