Imagining Indians in the Southwest: Persistent Visions of a Primitive Past Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Synopsis:

In Imagining Indians in the Southwest, Leah Dilworth examines the creation and enduring potency of the early twentieth-century myth of the primitive Indian. She demonstrates how visions of Indians — created by tour companies, anthropologists, collectors of Indian crafts, and modernist writers — have reflected white anxieties about complex racial and cultural issues. Contending that Native Americans of the Southwest still are seen primarily as living relics, Dilworth describes the ways in which they have resisted cultural colonialism.
