Interweaving theory, history, and creative work along the metaphor of basket weaving, Asegi Stories
offers a powerful rereading of European colonialism and encourages a reimagination of traditional Cherokee gender and sexuality.
Based in part on research and in part on creative reworking of culture, Driskill's monograph presents both a valuable critical source for Two-Spirit histories and theories and a model for a creative praxis that productively envisions the asegi
space of the future.

Driskill queers the practice of memory and history. S/he works as an exile within colonial logics, creating origin stories that find their significance in the present.
Asegi Stories places the study of sexuality and two-spirit strategies for continuance at the heart of decolonial struggles and decolonial intellectual projects that bridge grassroots and academic scholarship.
