Whereas confronts the coercive language of the United States government in its responses, treaties, and apologies to Native American peoples. Through a virtuosic array of short lyrics, prose poems, longer narratives sequences, resolutions, and disclaimers, Layli Long Soldier has created a brilliantly innovative text to examine histories, landscapes, her own writing, and her predicament inside national affiliations.
