Abstract
Description
The hegemony of American Sign Language (ASL) obscures the variety of sign languages and cultures that exist in North America. This work illuminates the coloniality of ASL and shifts the loci of knowledge to an indigenous signed lingua franca, Plains Indian Sign Language (PISL), creating a decolonial call to arms.
