This article analyses the output of Louise Erdrich, a North-American novelist, and José Maria Arguedas, a Peruvian prosaist, in view of the 'poetics of Métis-ation' as applied in the structure of their respective fiction stories. Attention is drawn to the role of our contemporary Métis culture and the theory of transculturation in the reading of such literary pieces. It is a comparative text, confronting indigenistic cultures - being the direct source of inspiration to Erdrich and Arguedas, against the culture(s) of Americans and Latinos (or, Hispanic Americans) of European descents. In addition, a literary-history background is outlined (the Ethnic Revival in the US and the Neo-indigenism ('neoindigenismo') in the South America), which has directly influenced the prosaic pieces of the authors under discussion.
