Abstract
 
Description
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 emotionally empowered. The historical anxieties revealed by "Playing Indian" continue o haunt Americans -both Indian and non-Indian- to this day.
