Abstract

The chapter discusses how narratives of national sovereignty, personal freedom, and pro-indigenous movements were appropriated and deployed, for the benefit of the U.S. imperialist thrust and assurance of strategic positioning on the shores of Cuba and beyond. It also demonstrates how the focus of literary works is on indigeneity.
