Outsiders can best appreciate Native Latin American cultures through their verbal art. The translations in this book use myths, stories, conversations, and magical chants to show how indigenous discourse from Mexico to Argentina shapes social knowledge and experience. Situating each performance in its cultural and personal context, the translators discuss the linguistic issues they confronted as they documented oral performances in writing, rendered Native American languages in English, and represented the voice qualities and semantic patterns of the originals.
