Why Is Craig Womack Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Craig Womack is an author and professor of Native American literature. Creek-Cherokee by ancestry, Womack wrote the book Red on Red: Native American Literary Separatism, a book of literary criticism which argues that the dominant approach to academic study of Native American literature is incorrect. Instead of using poststructural and postcolonial approaches that do not have their basis in Native culture or experience, Womack claims the work of the Native critic should be to develop tribal models of criticism. In 2002, Craig won Wordcraft Circle Writer of the Year Winner. Along with Robert Allen Warrior, Jace Weaver and Greg Sarris, Womack asserted themselves as a nationalist , which is part of an activist movement. The movement significantly altered the critical methodologies used to approach Native American literature.
