An American Heart of Darkness: The 1913 Expedition for American Indian Citizenship.
Barsh, Russel Lawrence
Great Plains Quarterly, v13 n2 p91-115 Spr 1993
With the backing of America's wealthy citizenry, Joseph Dixon organized the 1913 Expedition of Citizenship in an effort to advance the acculturation of American Indians. Dixon's efforts were a melodramatic charade in which the Indians gained nothing but patriotic rituals, still practiced at tribal meetings and powwows. Too late, Dixon realized the grim reality of reservation life. (LP)
