Part One interprets cultural meanings as revealed in prosodic and temporal phenomena in spoken English discourse data. The emerging theme is the (re)construction of American Indian tribal identities in terms of a newly created intertribal consciousness in an urban setting. Part Two introduces an ethnography of writing approach not only as a contribution to the intersection of linguistics and literature in general but as a valid approach to American Indian texts in particular.
