To be Indian

The Life of Iroquois-Seneca Arthur Caswell Parker

Born on the Seneca Indian Reservation in New York State, Arthur Caswell Parker (1881-1955) was a prominent intellectual leader both within and outside tribal circles. Of mixed Iroquois, Seneca, and Anglican descent, Parker was also a controversial figure-recognized as an advocate for Indians but criticized for his assimilationist stance. In this exhaustively researched biography-the first book-length examination of Parker’s life and career-Joy Porter explores complex issues of Indian identity that are as relevant today as in Parker’s time. From childhood on, Parker learned from his well-connected family how to straddle both Indian and white worlds. His great-uncle, Ely S. Parker, was Commissioner of Indian Affairs under Ulysses S. Grant--the first American Indian to hold the position. Influenced by family role models and a strong formal education, Parker, who became director of the Rochester Museum, was best known for his work as a "museologist" (a word he coined). Porter shows that although Parker achieved success within the dominant Euro-American culture, he was never entirely at ease with his role as assimilated Indian and voiced frustration at having "to play Indian to be Indian." In expressing this frustration, Parker articulated a challenging predicament for twentieth-century Indians: the need to negotiate imposed stereotypes, to find ways to transcend those stereotypes, and to assert an identity rooted in the present rather than in the past.

Da ich Amerikanische Kulturwissenschaften als Schwerpunkt studierte, besuchte ich zusatzlich in der Historischen Ethnologie das Hauptseminar 'Politik im indigenen Nordamerika', zu dessen Abschluss die vorliegende Hausarbeit entstand.

Vielen Dank fur Ihr Interesse., Abstract: Die in dieser Arbeit behandelten Aspekte lauten wie folgt: - Klarung der Terminologie 'Indianer', 'Stamm' und 'indigen', mit dem Ziel, einen diplomatischen Denkansatz anzusteuern; - Uberblick sowohl uber die Vorgeschichte, als auch uber die Durchfuhrung des 'Indian Reorganization Act' (IRA) im Zuge des 'Indian New Deal' durch John Collier; - schwerpunktmassige historische Darstellung der 'Indian Congresses' (Tagungen der Amerikanischen Ureinwohner) im Hinblick auf deren Funktion als Wahlkampf-Medium zugunsten des IRA, bei gleichzeitiger Beleuchtung der divergierenden Stellungnahmen seitens der Ureinwohner; - Abschliessende Betrachtung der hypothetischen Fragestellung: 'Waren zu Beginn der Beziehungen zwischen den Amerikanischen Ureinwohnern und den europaischen Siedlern bereits diplomatischere Resultate erzielbar gewesen?' Ziel dieser Arbeit: Darstellung eines kulturhistorischen Uberblicks uber das Verhaltnis zwischen indigenen Kulturen in Nordamerika und der US-Regierung, insbesondere anhand des 20.

Who is an Indian?

Race, Place, and the Politics of Indigeneity in the Americas

Who is an Indian? This is possibly the oldest question facing Indigenous peoples across the Americas, and one with significant implications for decisions relating to resource distribution, conflicts over who gets to live where and for how long, and clashing principles of governance and law. For centuries, the dominant views on this issue have been strongly shaped by ideas of both race and place. But just as important, who is permitted to ask, and answer this question? This collection examines the changing roles of race and place in the politics of defining Indigenous identities in the Americas. Drawing on case studies of Indigenous communities across North America, the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, it is a rare volume to compare Indigenous experience throughout the western hemisphere. The contributors question the vocabulary, legal mechanisms, and applications of science in constructing the identities of Indigenous populations, and consider ideas of nation, land, and tradition in moving indigeneity beyond race.

Structure and Change in Indian Society

Recent theoretical and methodological innovations in the anthropological analysis of South Asian societies have introduced distinctive modifications in the study of Indian social structure and social change. This book, reporting on twenty empirical studies of Indian society conducted by outstanding scholars, reflects these trends not only with reference to Indian society itself, but also in terms of the relevance of such trends to an understanding of social change more generally. The contributors demonstrate the adaptive changes experienced by the studied groups in particular villages, towns, cities, and regions. The authors view the basic social units of joint family, caste, and village not as structural isolates, but as intimately connected with one another and with other social units through social and cultural networks of various kinds that incorporate the social units into the complex structure of Indian civilization. Within this broadened conception of social structure, these studies trace the changing relations of politics, economics, law, and language to the caste system. Showing that the caste system is dynamic, with upward and downward mobility characterizing it from pre-British times to the present, the studies suggest that the modernizing forces which entered the system since independence--parliamentary democracy, universal suffrage, land reforms, modern education, urbanization, and industrial technology--provided new opportunities and paths to upward mobility, but did not radically alter the system. The chapters in this book show that the study of Indian society reveals novel forms of social structure change. They introduce methods and theories that may well encourage social scientists to extend the study of change in Indian society to the study of change in other areas. Milton Singer (1912-1994) was Paul Klapper Professor of Social Sciences and professor of anthropology at the University of Chicago. He was a fellow of the Academy of Arts and Sciences. He was also chosen as a distinguished lecturer by the American Anthropological Association and was the recipient of the Distinguished Scholar Award of the Association for Asian Studies. Bernard S. Cohn (1918-2003) was Professor Emeritus of Anthropology at the University of Chicago. He was widely known for his work on India during the British colonial period and wrote many books on the subject of India including India: The Social Anthropology of a Civilization (1971), An Anthropologist among the Historians and Other Essays (1987), and Colonialism and its Forms of Knowledge (1996).
