Gendered Construction of the American Indian in Popular Media.
Bird, S. Elizabeth
Journal of Communication, v49 n3 p61-83 Sum 1999
Traces changes in images of Native Americans over time, emphasizing the role of gender, and how Native-American men and women have become sexualized in relation to the "White gaze," an important component of colonial domination. Shows that the 1990s'"lovely princess" and "Native-American stud" may be more benign than earlier images but they are equally unreal and dehumanizing. (SR)
