My examination of the texts focuses on the notion that home for all Native Americans (mixed and full bloods) has and is evolving and that this re-definition has made the location of language, culture, family, and community a Home that cannot be defined by traditional Native or Western boundaries or definitions. Instead, home depends on the inter-relation of such attributes, but it is not specific to any inclusion or omission. Home is not anything or everything but a definite correlation of those elements that correspond to belonging to a space or place. My contentions rely on the fact that the traditional sense of space and place is no longer readily available to a majority of full-bloods and mixed bloods.
