Placental Politics: Chamoru Women, White Womanhood, and Indigeneity under U.S. Colonialism in Guam
DeLisle uses her evidence to argue for a "placental politics"--a new conceptual paradigm for Indigenous women's political action. Drawing on oral histories, letters, photographs, military records, and more, DeLisle reveals how the entangled histories of CHamoru and white American women make us rethink the cultural politics of U.S. imperialism and the emergence of new Indigenous identities.
