At a time when Indigenous peoples worldwide are asserting their rights, American Indians and the American Imaginary offers an ethnographic and historical perspective on the power of representations of Native Americans in American public culture. The book's wide-ranging case studies move from colonial captivity narratives to modern film, from the campfire to the sports arena, from legal and scholarly texts to tribally controlled museums and cultural centers.
