"Understanding Tolowa Histories" develops a multi-leveled historical inquiry of the Native Tolowa of Northwestern California. The Tolowa were displaced and nearly destroyed in the nineteenth century. Since then, they have struggled to reclaim their collective identity and language and are now re-emerging as a cultural and political group.

Presenting a wide-ranging analysis of ethnographic, linguistic and historical materials, James Collins explores the linguistic and political dynamics of place-claiming and expropriation as well as the relation between otherness and subjugation. He shows the role of such discourse in the ongoing controversies about tradition and identity in Native and non-Native America and establishes the place of the Tolowa and Native California in the larger pattern of US/Indian history.


James Collins is Associate Professor of Anthropology at the State University of New York at Albany.


"An academic but nonetheless personally informed exploration of the assumptions behind the way history is recorded and recounted, examined in the context of history in general and the history of the Tolowa people specifically."
