He has been named as a member of the literary movement which Kenneth Lincoln dubbed the Native American Renaissance , a flourishing of literature and art beginning in the midth century. One of the few science fiction novels written by a Native American, it portrayed a procession of tribal pilgrims through a surreal , dystopian landscape of an America suffering an environmental apocalypse brought on by white greed for oil.
Simultaneously postmodern and deeply traditional, inspired by N. Scott Momaday 's pioneering works, Vizenor drew on poststructuralist theory and Anishinaabe trickster stories to portray a world in the grip of what he called "terminal creeds" — belief systems incapable of change. She is killed with poisoned cookies, purportedly for her promoting racial separatism. In Vizenor's subsequent novels, he used a shifting and overlapping cast of trickster figures in settings ranging from China to White Earth Reservation to the University of Kent.
Frequently quoting European philosophers such as Umberto Eco , Roland Barthes and Jean Baudrillard , Vizenor has written a fiction that is allusive, humorous and playful, but deeply serious in portraying the state of Native America. He has refused to romanticize the figure of the Native and opposes continued oppression. Vizenor's major theme is that the idea of "Indian" as one people was an "invention" of European invaders.
Before Columbus arrived, no one defined Indian as other; there were only the indigenous peoples of various tribes such as Anishinaabe or Dakota. To deconstruct the idea of "Indianness," Vizenor uses strategies of irony and Barthesian jouissance. For instance, in the lead-up to Columbus Day in , he published the novel, The Heirs of Columbus , in which Columbus is portrayed as a Mayan Indian trying to return home to Central America.

In Hotline Healers , he claims that Richard Nixon , the American president who he said did more for American Indians than any other in restoring sovereign rights and supporting self-determination, did so as part of a deal in exchange for traditional " virtual reality " technology.
He has edited several collections of academic work related to Native American writing. He is the founder-editor of the American Indian Literature and Critical Studies series at the University of Oklahoma Press , which has provided an important venue for critical work on and by Native writers. In his own studies, Vizenor has worked to deconstruct the semiotics of Indianness.
His title, Fugitive Poses is derived from Vizenor's assertion that the term Indian is a social-science construction that replaces native peoples, who become absent or "fugitive". He wrote that native peoples were still bound by "narratives of dominance" that replace them with "Indians".

In order to cover more general Native studies, Vizenor suggests using the term, "postindian," to convey that the disparate, heterogeneous tribal cultures were "unified" and could be addressed en masse only by Euro-American attitudes and actions towards them. He has also promoted the neologism of " survivance ", a cross between the words "survival" and "resistance.
He coined it to imply a process rather than an end, as the ways of tribal peoples continue to change as do the ways of others. He also notes that the survival of tribal peoples as distinct from majority cultures, is based in resistance. Both his fiction and academic studies have contributed to his being honored as a major Anishinaabe and American intellectual and writer. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
