A Conversation with Simon Ortiz.
Purdy, John; Hausman, Blake; Ortiz, Simon
Studies in American Indian Literatures, v12 n4 p1-14 Win 2000
Pueblo author Simon Ortiz discusses Indigenous authors' use of their native language as a form of self-assertion, pointing out how African literature drives the decolonizing impulse in literature today. Use of the dominant language would reach a larger audience but would also make transmission of colonizers' cultural assumptions unavoidable while leaving facets of Indigenous culture unexpressed and unexpressable.
