Forked Tongue in Cheek or Life Among the Noble Civilages
Lurie, Nancy Oestreich
Indian Historian, 7, 2, 28-40,52, Spr 74
Although all cultural groups (civilages) are unique in some respect, Indian people are unique in more ways than other Americans and in ways that set them apart from all other Americans, taking all minorities and the dominant society as a whole. Beginning with U.S. colonial history, the article discusses the so-called dominant society, its behavior toward Indians and how entrenched attitudes underlying that behavior have developed in the course of the American cultural history.
