Über diesen Titel

Inhaltsangabe:

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.

Dilworth explores diverse expressions of mainstream society's primitivist impulse -- from the Fred Harvey Company's guided tours of Indian pueblos supposedly untouched by modern life to ethnographic descriptions of the Hopi Snake dance as alien and exotic. She reveals how magazines touted the preindustrial simplicity of Indian artisanal occupations and how Mary Austin's 1923 book, The American Rhythm, urged poets to emulate the cadences of Native American song and dance.

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. She concludes with a consideration of two contemporary artists who, by infusing their works with history and complexity, are recasting the practices and politics of primitivism.

From Library Journal:

With the advent of the railroads, Americans flocked to the Southwest. Visitors were fascinated by the Native cultures, particularly those of the Pueblos, seeing in their "primitive" societies values lost to the mainstream industrialized culture. Dilworth (English, Long Island Univ.) contends that tourists, collectors, and anthropologists alike re-created the image of the Native societies to conform to Euro-American primitivist ideals. In exploring this thesis, Dilworth evaluates turn-of-the-century descriptions of the Hopi Snake Dance and discusses the crucial role played by the Fred Harvey Company in exploitation of these cultures. Arguing that Native realities were marginalized by those who purported to describe them, the author includes a consideration of two contemporary artists, Pueblo poet and sculptor Nora Naranjo-Morse and Hopi photographer Victor Masayesva, who re-create the Native-white exchange from a Native point of view. This thoughtful study merits inclusion in most collections.?Mary B. Davis, Huntington Free Lib., N.Y.
