    (Re)Invention And Contextualization In Contemporary Native American Fiction
       
    by Wendy J. Rohrbacher; Masters Thesis presented to the Faculty of the College of Arts and Sciences, University of Alaska Anchorage.
    Contemporary Native American authors and critics are retelling, reorganizing, and re-evaluating traditional tribal stories in order to assert a communally ascribed identity that accurately portrays today's Indian. These new stories seek to break down the signs and artifacts of the white man's Indian and replace them with signs of a vibrant and thriving culture.

    Native American Literature
       
    Although it was the first American literature to be created, Native American literature has been the last to be recognized -- and, to some extent, is still waiting for full recognition. Beginning with its first thousand years of oral literature and continuing to the present time with writers in all the genre of literature, Native American is an important element in the literature of this country.
