"No One Ever Did This to Me Before": Contemporary American Indian Texts in the Classroom.
Purdy, John
American Indian Quarterly, v16 n1 p53-61 Win 1992
Outlines a theoretical framework to help students seek patterns in the diverse content and styles of American Indian literary works. Describes four elements: differentiation, or the "signs" of Indian culture; investigation, evoking the reader's sense of history and cosmos; affirmation of Native American identity and communal values; and continuity.
