As reconstructed, the story serves to reassert for whites their right to be here, easing any lingering guilt about the displacement of the native inhabitants.To understand current imagery, it is essential to understand the history of its making, and these essays mesh to create a powerful, interconnected account of image creation over the past 150 years. The contributors, who represent a range of disciplines and specialties, reveal the distortions and fabrications white culture has imposed on significant historical and current events, as represented by treasured artifacts, such as photographic images taken of Sitting Bull following his surrender, the national monument at the battlefield of Little Bighorn, nineteenth-century advertising, the television phenomenon Northern Exposure, and the film Dances with Wolves. Well illustrated, this volume demonstrates the complacency of white culture in its representation of its troubled relationship with American Indians.

Good historical overview of the social understanding of native americans in popular culture. It goes over how plays, televisions and novels helped shaped the image of the american indian for generations and shows how false and limited this view is, even based on limited facts. It's not easy to construct this argument but the argument in this book is extremely detailed and goes back to the birth of america until modern times to show how the construction of the stereotype started and spread through america.

The title says it all. Wide-ranging in scope--article subjects span 2-3 centuries and touch on topics throughout visual culture studies, literature, and identity. Excellent supplemental text in Native American history or art history classes. Highly recommended, but some of the articles on more recent topics are beginning to show their wear (since it's been about 15 years since it was published).

Raising kids with Native American Ancestry, it becomes important to be able to "call out" the false and misleading images they see around them. It's a kind of war for their definition. They grow up asking who they are and what makes them different. Kids on the playground say unintentionally mean things. There are huge and thoughtless assumptions made about them, all because authors and directors take the well-worn route of racial stereotypes. My kids have to struggle with the ignorance propagated by media, every day of their lives.

"Dressing in Feathers" is an admirable tool for taking apart those ignorances, the stereotypes that my kids have to survive. It's collection of essays are thoughtful, difficult, occasionally abstruse, but always zeroed in like lasers upon the target.
