Description: Specifically, We Will Dance Our Truth seeks to "express the spatial, performative, and religious ways that many Yoemem sustain their collective identity" (4). [...]Shorter proposes to "remap the boundary between the ethnological categories oral and literate and expand Western notions of historical expression to include nonliterate representations of 'local* history through various oral and ritual practices" (4). The ties between history, narrative, and place-making have been central subjects of much scholarly inquiry, but few authors have approached these issues with such an intellectual breadth and vigor.
