Playing Indian


The Boston Tea Party, the Order of Red Men, Camp Fire Girls, Boy Scouts, and Grateful Dead concerts are just a few examples of the American tendency to appropriate Indian dress and act out Indian roles. This provocative book explores how white Americans have used their ideas about Indians to shape national identity in different eras--and how Indian people have reacted to these imitations of their native dress, language, and ritual. 25 illustrations.
