Book by Philip Joseph Deloria - Yale University Press, 1998
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 occasionally empowered. The historical anxieties revealed by Playing Indian continue to haunt Americans -- both Indian and non-Indian -- to this day.
