About this product
- DescriptionToday as in the past there are many cultural and commercial representations of American Indians that, thoughtlessly or otherwise, negatively shape the images of indigeus people. Jolivette and his co-authors challenge and contest these images, demonstrating how Native representation and identity are at the heart of Native politics and Native activism. In portrayals of a Native Barbie Doll or a racist mascot, disrespect of Native women, misconceptions of mixed race identities, or the commodification of all things Indian , the authors reveal how the very existence of Native people continues to be challenged, with harmful repercussions in social and legal policy, t just in popular culture. The authors re-articulate Native history, religion, identity, and oral and literary traditions in ways that allow the true identity and persona of the Native person to be recognized and respected. It is a project that is fundamental to ethnic revitalization and the recognition of indigeus rights in North America. This book is a provocative and essential introduction for students and Native and n-Native people who wish to understand the images and realities of American Indian lifeways in American society.
