Grace L. Dillon, in “Haint Stories Rooted in Conjure Science: Indigenous Scientific Literacies in Andrea Hairston’s Redwood and Wildfire,” emphasizes how this novel deconstructs the excessive capitalism and empire tactics of the Victorian period and creates a renewed form of the speculative novel that emphasizes both the agency and presence of Native and African-American sciences intertwined with art via the use of Indigenous methodologies and epistemologies.
