Indigenous Quotient, Stalking Words

Camaradas: Aztlan Libre Press, an independent press based out of San Antonio, Texas, announces the release of our third publication, Indigenous Quotient/Stalking Words: American Indian Heritage as Future, by Juan Gómez-Quiñones.

Gómez-Quiñones is an award-winning educator, author, community activist, editor, poet, and for over forty years, one of the foremost Chicano historians and scholars in the U.S.

This is a text sure to become essential and a classic, a challenge to every living scholar of the Americas.

Roxanne Dunbar-Ortiz, Professor Emeriti, Ethnic Studies, California State University East Bay, and author of Roots of Resistance: A History of Land Tenure in New Mexico.

 These two essays cover fifty years of scholarship that includes the forging of Chicana/o Studies, and they are especially important at a time when most Chicana/o scholars have no historical memory of the importance of Indigenous thought on the formation of their discipline.

Rodolfo F. Acuña, Chicana/o Studies Department/California State University Northridge, and author of Occupied America: A History of Chicanos.
