Decolonizing “Prehistory”

Deep Time and Indigenous Knowledges in North America

by Gesa MackenthunChristen Mucher

Decolonizing “Prehistory” critically examines and challenges the paradoxical role that modern historical-archaeological scholarship plays in adding legitimacy to, but also delegitimizing, contemporary colonialist practices. Using an interdisciplinary approach, this volume empowers Indigenous voices and offers a nuanced understanding of the American deep past.
