essays on popular culture and imperialism
"synopsis" may belong to another edition of this title.
This eye-opening collection of essays deals with the distortions of Native American ethnography within mainstream literature and movies. Churchill provides examples of how Euroamericans have played fast and loose with dates, and more currently with the spiritual nature of Native Americans. He theorizes that the attempt to understand the culture of Native Americans has led to the dispossession of that culture. Churchill provides no answers on how to redeem or fix the current situation, but his ideas will force readers to acknowledge the stereotyping and demise of various cultures. His book is essential to understanding the effects of a system of internal colonization, and the consumption of the rights and resources of indigenous peoples. Valuable.
