The People Who Stayed: Southeastern Indian Writing After Removal is the first anthology to focus on the literary work of Native Americans with ancestry to “people who stayed” in southeastern states after 1830. This volume represents every state and every genre, including short stories, excerpts from novels, poetry, essays and plays. Although most works are contemporary, the collection covers the entire post-Removal era. While many speak to the prospects and perils of acculturation, all the writers bear witness to the ways, oblique or straightforward, that they and their families are connected and honor their Indian identities despite the legacy of removal.
