Modern American Indian life is urban| rural| and everything in-between. Lobo and Peters have compiled an unprecedented collection of innovative scholarship| stunning art| poetry| and prose that documents American Indian experiences of urban life. A pervasive rural/urban dichotomy still shapes the popular and scholarly perceptions of Native Americans| but this is a false expression of a complex and constantly changing reality. When viewed from the Native perspectives| our concepts of urbanity and approaches to American Indian studies are necessarily transformed. Courses in Native American studies| ethnic studies| anthropology| and urban studies must be in step with contemporary Indian realities| and American Indians and the Urban Experience will be an absolutely essential text for instructors. This powerful combination of path-breaking scholarship and visual and literary arts from poetry and photography to rap and graffiti will be enjoyed by students| scholars| and a general audience. A Choice Outstanding Academic Book.”
