Gina Caison and Kirstin Squint discuss their research into the intersections of Southern and Native American experiences. In her book Red States: Indigeneity, Settler Colonialism, and Southern Studies, Caison argues that notions of Native American identity in the U.S. South can be understood by tracing how audiences in the region came to imagine indigeneity through texts ranging from theatrical and musical performances, pre–Civil War literatures, and contemporary novels. In LeAnne Howe at the Intersections of Southern and Native American Literature, Kirstin Squint explores the innovative and award-winning works of poetry, drama, and fiction from the prominent Chocktaw writer.
