Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Moving from the Boston Tea Party to the present, this provocative book explores the ways non-Indian Americans have acted out their fantasies about Indians in order to experience national, modern, and personal identities. In this complicated tug-of-war between imaginings and actions, Indian people have been embraced and rejected, frequently humiliated and occasionally empowered. The historical anxieties revealed by Playing Indian continue to haunt Americans — both Indian and non-Indian — to this day.

I found this book after following a link from This American Life, and I am glad I did. It is great to delve into this strangely common U.S. cultural phenomenon and really take a look. It is explored here in a uniquely captivating style. The research is solid, the topic can get heavy but the tone stays light!
