Abstract

This study examines the ways in which minority literatures in general, and indigenous literatures specifically destabilise and interrogate the values which construct a mainstream canon by creating and generating work that challenges and negotiates the 'representative' nature of largely white patriarchal mainstream values. 'Mainstream' in this sense refers to the predominant racial group that produces anthologies as opposed to minority groups.
