Sovereignty Matters investigates the multiple perspectives that exist within indigenous communities regarding the significance of sovereignty as a category of intellectual, political, and cultural work. Much scholarship to date has treated sovereignty in geographical and political matters solely in terms of relationships between indigenous groups and their colonial states or with a bias toward American contexts. This groundbreaking anthology of essays by indigenous peoples from the Americas and the Pacific offers multiple perspectives on the significance of sovereignty.

"In Samoan folklore a fagogo is a story told mostly at night, privately, inside individual homes. It transports the audience into the folklore world of heroes and heroines, of supernatural forces acting for good or evil, but is set against a background of typical local society, making it immediately comprehensible to Samoans of all ages. The stories contain songs sung by the narrators."--Publisher's blurb.
